Victory 'Couch to 5k' is a great course to get you started as a runner, or to help you pick back up the pace after a break from running through absence or an injury.
By following the Government approved guidelines the course is designed to take you, over a period of nine weeks, from a walker to a confident 5k runner.
Each session will be a mix of long walks and short runs, which over the nine weeks will progress to shorter walks and longer runs, until you are confidently running the whole 5k distance!
Following on from the course is the Victory 5k to 10k which will allow you to use your new running skills to progress confidently to running 10k.
This course focuses on continuos running and allows you to build up your distance and speed gradually over the duration of the course.
Both courses are free to Victory Club Members (Standard membership - including England Athletics Membership is £30 and Non-competitive or 2nd claim membership is £15)
