Couch to 5k
A FREE Couch to 5k Programme for the University
About our Couch to 5k
Our free Couch to 5k programme is a running plan for complete beginners. Lasting 10 weeks and ending with a 5k event.
Led by our qualified run leader, the programme is comprised of three runs a week with a rest day in-between each. Two of the runs are a group activity, and one run is self-directed. We run two programmes a year, in semester one and semester two.
Our next programme starts Wednesday 4th May - Sessions run Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes at 12:30pm.
How does the programme work?
Our Couch to 5K programme works because it starts with a combination of running and walking, progressively building up your stamina over a period of weeks. The first week involves running for just a single minute at a time, making the programme feel as achievable as possible.
If you have any health concerns about establishing a new exercise regime like the Couch to 5K programme, make an appointment with your GP to discuss it with them before you begin.
