10k Beginners Courses

10k Beginners Courses

Wanting to get out and run the 10k but not sure if you can do it alone? Our 10k beginners courses are perfect for you. Our friendly coaches will help you build up your skill and your confidence to get you ready for the Great Women’s 10k on the 17th May. So if you've not been running for a while or you just haven't done a 10k before, we'll help you cross the finish line!

​​Getting Started

Our 10k Beginners courses take place over 12 weeks, with sessions twice a week we'll help you build up your fitness quickly to get you ready in time for the race! The courses start you off easy, alternating three minutes walking with three minutes jogging to help build up your fitness levels. With the support of our coaches, you'll build up to the 10k distance at the end of the 12 weeks.

Sessions meet from a variety of Glasgow locations so you can fit in with the one that best suits you!

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!
