Striders launch Couch to 5k group

Seaford Striders line up for the annual 5k fun run on the seafront

If you would like to get fit and fancy taking up running but are just too nervous to take those first steps on your own, then the Seaford Striders might just have the answer.  This small, friendly club has runners of all abilities and they are delighted to announce that they will shortly be widening their scope and forming a ‘couch to 5k’ group.

There will be a dedicated leader and new members will be guided slowly through the NHS plan, which is designed to get just about anyone off the couch and running 5km in a matter of months.  Members will start gently and there will be plenty of built-in rest stops.

If you would like to give this a try, put on your trainers and come along.  The group will commence on Wednesday, 22 March and they will continue to meet every Wednesday at 7pm in the Café area at the Downs Leisure Centre, Sutton Road, Seaford, BN25 4QW. All abilities welcome!

    1. Thanks Caroline. It’s the same as joining the club, £16 for an adult, with a reduced rate of £8.00 for unemployed or retired people. But if you want to come and try us out before you decide, please do.

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment. We’re keeping the group to adults only for now, but we do have our Juniors meet each Wednesday at 5.55pm for 6pm. The first Couch to 5k session is free, after that to join the club costs £16 for the year. Hope that helps, just let us know if you need any further info.

      1. Hi, I’m pretty fit go to the gym, have ran a couple of 5k, last year, and do run a bit now. But not good enough to do 6miles with the ordinary group I feel. Is this new venture for me ???
