New to running or returning after a while?


RunnerCouch to 5k is a great way for anyone to start to run, why not make a plan now to help you look and feel amazing!

Newcastle Frontrunners will be offering you the chance to join our next Couch to 5K running programme starting later this summer*. The programme is aimed at all running abilities from beginners, those who haven’t done any for a while, to those who are maybe returning from injury – the C25K programme will work for you all. Meet the NFR team and your fellow C25k-ers at Gosforth Pool, and enjoy a chat, fruit and maybe cake afterwards.

The programme requires 3 sessions per week – the Wednesday and Sundays with us, and 1 on your own at a time of your choosing, culminating in a 5k.  There is a free smart phone app to help your training.  No special kit is required, just comfortable t-shirt/long-sleeved shirt, and shorts or leggings, and some sports shoes.

The programme very gradually progresses you from jog/walking to the goal of running a full 5K (3.1 miles). This structured approach is tried and trusted by many sport coaches and health organisations including the NHS and has proven to work. So don’t be daunted by thoughts of not being good/fast/fit enough the NFR Coaches, Leaders, previous NFR C25K participants and all of our NFR club members are all here to support and encourage you all the way through.

Interested? We are taking entries now!
