Couch potatoes welcome

Malvern Joggers are launching the Couch to 5k programme to people who might never have run before

Its time to dust off the trainers and dig out the jogging trousers. From Wednesday 20th of January Malvern Joggers is launching the Couch to 5k programme to people who might never have run before. This nine week programme is suitable for complete beginners, starting with walking and short periods of running before building up to taking part in a 5km Park Run.

A dedicated team of volunteer adult run leaders and coaches will support, encourage and dedicate their time to something they feel really makes a difference to people’s lives.

First meeting is Wednesday 20th of January at 7.15 Malvern St James Sports Hall cafe, Barnards Green Road. The cost is just £20 and provides membership of Malvern Joggers for the year. The programme is available to adults. If aged between 16-18, written parental consent is required.
