Beginners Courses

Feel like getting out running but pretty sure you can't make it to the end of the road? Well not to worry! It's never too late to get started! Our beginners courses are designed to help people who have been out of the game for a while or have no experience at all! 

​​Getting Started

The courses we offer for beginners take place in 10 week blocks, with sessions once a week. The courses start off small, alternating two minutes walking with two minutes jogging to help build up your fitness levels. This is gradually increased throughout the course and builds up to three miles at the end of the 10 weeks. The sessions meet from a variety of Glasgow locations so you can fit in with the one that best suits you! 

​​When and Where Are the Sessions?

Our Beginners Courses take place throughout the city. Have a look below for details of the remaining 2014 courses to see which one suits you. ​​Call 0800 027 0470 to book!

What Do I Wear?

The best thing to wear is a good pair of running shoes that fit you well and suit the shape of your feet! This will really help to prevent injury and will be much more comfortable for you! We recommend getting advice from a specialist running retailer to find the right shoes for you.

Other than the shoes, we recommend that you come prepared for the unpredictable Scottish weather! In winter a hat, waterproof jacket and gloves will help protect from the cold and the rain, and easily removable layers are also advised as you can heat up pretty fast! 

What Does it cost? 

The price below includes the welcome pack, which will be handed out at the start of the course!
