Couch to 5KM group meeting at Seaford salts recreational ground

2023 was our most successful year yet for the C25k programme and we were thrilled to see a large number of runners graduate at the Seaford Beach Parkrun in June after nine weeks of progressive running.

Taking part in C25K will take you from not running at all to being able to run 5 kilometers in just nine weeks. This is for you if you want to learn how to run having never previously run, or if you have found it difficult to keep up the momentum during recent years and need a refresher, or if you used to run some time ago and want to re-find your running mojo. It is suitable for any adult who is able to walk non-stop for at least 20 minutes and wants to be able to transition to running.

Will I need any special equipment?

Supportive training shoes and comfortable clothing to run in. We recommend that you download the NHS C25K App so that you can follow the training plan. Ideally you will do two other training runs using the App between each Strider-led group.

What will Seaford Striders provide?

Loads of encouragement from our members, many of whom started out by doing C25K themselves. There will be separate groups for all abilities led by experienced runners. They will know exactly how you are feeling – the chances are they will have felt the same when they started.

I’m scared I won’t be able to keep up!

Don’t worry we won’t leave anyone behind. There will always be one of our members at the tail of each group and our group is suitable for all abilities.

What does it cost?

It is free to take part! Obviously we would love you to join Seaford Striders but it is not a condition of taking part.

OK, you have persuaded me, what do I do now?
