Popular Lymm Runners Beginners’ course is back!


REGISTRATION is now open for the popular Lymm Runners 2022 Beginners’ Course, starting on January 4 next year – but be quick as places are limited!

After a break of one year – the very popular, and often transformative – Lymm Runners Beginners’ Course, which this year will include training for those who may have lost their mojo during Covid and wish to return to running.

The course starts at 7.00pm on Tuesday January 4th at Victoria Park in Warrington, lasts 8 weeks and is open to runners and would-be runners of all abilities.

There are two sessions a week lasting 1 hour each: on Tuesdays, a structured coaching session at the running track which is then put into practice on a Thursday evening with confidence-building group run/walks around Lymm. These leave at 7.00pm from the High School are designed to build up pace and distance over the weeks.

Sounds a bit scary? There’s no need to worry. Lymm runners are considered one of the friendliest and most supportive running clubs in the region, so participants can expect plenty of encouragement as well as structured coaching by qualified leaders in separate training groups – so no one gets left behind.

The Course is free but we do ask participants to join Lymm Runners and England Athletics for the start of the Course. Membership of both costs just £36.00 a year

And if you’re still not sure, check out what the class of 2020 have to say:

“55 and never run in my life. Went to learn to run, but unexpectedly found a wonderful group of friends. 1 year later and we do 10K for fun. Amazing change to my life.”

“The best thing I’ve done in my 50s! Fun, fitness and friends. Lymm runners are supportive, encouraging and a great team.”

‘’Daunting at first but met some new best friends and now run for fun”

“Lymm Runners gave me the confidence to believe in myself that I could run. It’s become a life changer for me – I love it and have made the most wonderful friends along the way!”

“After drunkenly signing up one night to the Beginner’s course, I forced myself to the first meeting and ran (albeit slowly and not very far). Fast forward two years and I’m running for fun helped along by some fellow beginners who have become such wonderful friends. Thank you, Lymm Runners.”
