Sign up to our Move More RunTogether programmes including RunTogether Get Me Started and RunTogether Couch to 5K, join a local running club or there are running plans available online you can follow yourself and start running with friends.
Our FREE Move More RunTogether programmes are aimed at people who have never run before, or need support to get started or continue on in their running journey
The sessions will progress gradually to give your body time to get used to running and you should only aim to run, or run-walk, at a pace which is comfortable for you (conversational running) and not focus on speed or distance initially. Pushing your body to run faster than is necessary when you’re starting out will only increase your risk of injury.
You do not have to be fit and athletic when you start on our programmes all you need is the ability and motivation to get outdoors and put one foot in front of the other.
It may help, if in the lead up to starting our sessions, you take regular brisk walks of 10-20mins, 3 x per week – but if you don’t manage to do this, don’t worry, you’re still welcome as long as you wear a pair of trainers and a smile!
It’s important you follow the Get Me Started and Couch to 5K running schedules outside of our weekly group sessions, to progress and get the most out of our group sessions to complete the programme safely. We also recommend you do some regular yoga, stretching or cross training between scheduled run days – but remember it’s also important to have rest days too!
All our groups are led by Move More Jersey volunteers who are qualified as British Athletic Leaders in Running Fitness.
