A “new start” running/stay running programme is being offered by Dunoon Hill Runners Club members Jean and Max. Would you like to start running and steadily build your fitness whereby at the end of 6 weeks you’ll be able to comfortably run with Dunoon Hill Runners on club nights?
Who it’s also for: Anyone who has lost their running mojo. Anyone who is returning from injury. Anyone who is struggling to maintain a consistent running practice. Anyone who has dropped away from club nights and can’t seem to work their way back.
Come along to learn (or re-learn) the basics: from warm ups to warm downs and everything in between! We’ll be progressively loading and building your muscular system and your cardiovascular system. All this will guide you towards being able to run comfortably, consistently and confidently.
Come and and join us!
This programme starts on Tuesday 5th April and will be completed over 6 weeks. Please message if you require any further details.
