Report from the first beginners' group:

 

THE FIRST 10 WEEK RUNNING FITNESS programme has been a great success, with 19 of the available 20 places snapped up even without much advertising,

 

The courses are aimed at those new to running.

 

Training is provided by England Athletics-qualified coach Amanda Thirsk and Julia Moore, who is also a qualified leader.  Both are members of Rochdale Harriers & A.C..  Amanda is a keen runner herself, specialising in endurance and coaching junior athletes twice per week.  
 

Amanda commented "There are a lot of people locally who are interested in improving their fitness levels but are not sure how to go about it.  We provide 10 weeks training aimed at new starters. Its a great way to improve your confidence and make new friends in an enjoyable and friendly environment"

 

The course is held at the Kingsway Park Sports Centre & Athletics Arena, Turf Hill Road. Participants arrive at 6:50pm on Monday evenings for a 1 hour session starting at 7pm.

 

The course costs 2 per session.  

 

Amanda continued "After completing the training programme, anyone wishing to take their running to the next level are welcome to join Rochdale Harriers & A.C. ".
