Grantham Running Club organises programme to attract more people to the sport

Grantham Running Club's beginning to run is a friendly and supportive programme aimed at people that are new to the sport.

The programme is based at Grantham Tennis Club and takes place over two evening sessions a week (Mondays and Thursdays) for 12 weeks.

It aims to get participants running continuously for 30 minutes.

The first session will be on the April 8 at 7pm.

Sessions are split into different pace groups so that people can run with people at a similar level.

Pace is set by participants. The club's goal is to let people set their own targets and help them to achieve them, no matter what their level of experience.

Anyone wishing to attend will need clothing and footwear suitable for exercise, although this does not have to be expensive kit.

The club also ask that you commit to running three times per week (two organised sessions with the group plus one in your own time) in order to progress through the programme.

Beginners sessions are split into three phases:

Warm up – A gentle dynamic warm up with drills to raise heart rates and get muscles ready for the main session.

Main session – Main sessions comprise intervals of running and walking in the streets near Grantham Tennis Club.

Over the weeks, the walking becomes less and less until participants are running for a full 30 minutes.

Cool down – A series of stretching exercises help participants cool down gradually, helping to prevent participants feeling the after effects of their run and reduce the chances of injury.

The programme costs £15 and all finishers get a custom beginners T-shirt and a celebratory buffet.
