Running For Beginners In Hampshire

Runners in the Hampshire countryside

Two Hampshire based running clubs have successfully set up beginners running groups after sending enthusiastic members on the Run in England 'Leaders in Running Fitness' courses. Eastleigh Running Club and Totton Running Club now have well established beginners groups, lead by members of the clubs.

Both new groups consist of runners who are making progress in their running hobby and have chosen to sign up for courses, which give them goals to aim for through a period of weeks before 'graduating' from the group.

The aim from both of these beginner groups is to encourage new runners to take up the challenge and eventually be able to join the main running club, giving them the chance to experience different coaching techniques and find the running style that suits them.
