New Beginners Running Group In Bridlington

New Beginners Running Group In Bridlington

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 14th March 2020.

A new beginners running group's been setup in Bridlington.

It has been organised by the town's Road Runners Club, through UK Athletics, who is the country's governing body for the sport.

It meets every Thursday night at 6pm at East Riding Leisure Centre.

Martin Hutchinson, who is a member of Bridlington Road Runners, said:

"It's something that we've talking about for a long time.

It's along the lines of 'couch to 5k' and our aim is over eight weeks, is to get you from running for about a minute, to being able to run a full 5k.

I think people can slightly intimidated because it's a bit official, we're a 'running club', and people think 'oh running club? Crikey, you're going to be out running marathons, half-marathons, 10k's'.

Whereas, something like a beginners group, for someone who wants to start running, everyone who starts is generally going to be the same ability."

Anyone who is interested needs to sign up before the event for insurance purposes at the link here:
