Sisters launch women’s Couch to 5K course

South Leeds Sisters, the all women running club, are launching a new ‘Couch to 5K’ course to help people get more active.
Couch To 5K was developed by the NHS and is a proven nine week programme which will take you from doing little or no exercise to running 5 kilometres.

Week one starts with mostly walking and short intervals of jogging. You build up your running ability in a very controlled way each week.

There are three sessions each week, starting on Monday 13 May, led by a trained run leader:

  • Monday 6:15pm Phoenix Bar, John Charles Centre
  • Wednesday 6:15pm Overflow car park at John Charles Centre
  • Saturday 9am Middleton Woods parkrun, Leeds Urban Bike Park.

The sessions are pay-as-you-feel and there’s a free gift to everyone who completes the programme. For more information or to book your place contact Holly Button or 07828 506023.

    1. South Leeds Sisters hold a training run every Monday (6:15, Phoenix Bar, South Leeds Stadium) and a social run every Wednesday (6:15 ususally from the JCCS overflow car park)
