Are you a beginner to running. Are you feeling like you want to get up and out there but not sure where to start? We have created a programme for absolute beginners and it is FREE to download.

Open to all no matter where you are, join in our online community and get supported!

So you want to run a 5k. Everyone can! It just takes a little motivation and a training plan!

We started our 5k Group last year and had a lot of success. We have absolute beginners right through to people who could only find 30 minutes to run with us and have had people start from no where to running a half marathon within the first 8 months.

We wanted to extend this to people outside of our club.

You can download the training programme and start improving. Join our Strava Club and see others taking on the challenge and feel part of the community. Use #mruk5k on Instagram on social media to connect to a larger audience!
