Beginners’ running groups
After five years of helping people start and improve their running, I’ll be taking the winter off this year, so the next groups won’t start until Spring 2018.
If you haven’t already, you can sign up to my mailing list at the bottom of this page so that you’ll know as soon as the running groups are starting again.
And if you want to get cracking straight away, I have a 0-5k guide
which is based on the training we do in the beginners group, and a 10k training guide
. Obviously these aren’t the same as the group environment but they should help.
Taking you from 0 to 5k and beyond
- 0-5k beginners’ group
- 5k+ improvers’ group
- Finsbury Park and Hampstead Heath
Like the idea of running but find it all a bit, well, painful? It doesn’t have to be. It can be fun and it can be something you can do. Even if you struggle running for the tube, I’ll help you run 5k and more.
Running is more fun if you do it with other people. People who don’t care if you’re sweaty and red-faced or how slow you’re going. Because they’re just the same as you.
We’ll run together as a group and gradually build up our distance week after week. If you want to start running, and more importantly, start enjoying running – join us.
Runs are led by me Laura Fountain aka ‘Lazy Girl Running’. I’m a UK Athletics qualified running coach and Level 3 Personal Trainer. I love running and have run 14 marathons, but just a few years ago I couldn’t even run 400 meters.
I have friendly, women-only 0-5k groups for complete beginners and a Improvers groups for those who want to run a bit further and work on getting faster.
