Royston Runners are organising a free 10-week Couch to 5k programme, and are inviting residents to get involved.

Sessions will take place from 1pm to 2pm every Saturday from May 4 at the Heath Sports Club.

Attendance is free with no need to pre-book, and is open to all fitness and experience levels. Children must be supervised at all times.


Sessions are run by UKA English Athletics qualified coach Grant Chapman, along with Royston Runners volunteers.

Royston Runner Anna, who joined the group after completing the last Couch to 5k programme, said: "C25K allowed me to meet some great people and start on the path to fitness in a supportive environment.

"I'd recommend it to anyone as a great boost to your self esteem!"
