Couch to 5K session

On Wednesday, we have a Couch to 5k session at 14:00 from outside the Portland Building on the steps (the side near the lake). The first session is on Wednesday 5th October.

Have you ever wanted to start running but not had the confidence or time to go to an athletics club? Then this is the event for you!

Over a period of 10 weeks there will be variety of fun student-led sessions, building from complete beginner (walk/jog sessions) to being able to finish a 5k without stopping.

The sessions will take place once a week at 2pm on Wednesdays at Portland Steps (Lakeside) on University Park Campus.

This a perfect opportunity to get fit, make friends and destress from all that uni work.

These sessions are completely free and open for anyone and everyone to attend, no uni sports membership nor club membership required!

Social Run

On a Monday, we have a 3 mile social run taking place at 17:45 from outside Jubilee Campus Sports Centre. The first social run is on Monday 3rd October.

Please join our Facebook group to keep up to date with any alterations to runs and look out for details of our upcoming socials! We welcome and encourage everyone to come along!
