Sidmouth Running Club


Sidmouth Running Club is launching its new year beginners’ course to help people get active.

Experienced coaches and run leaders will take participants through a programme that starts with a mixture of running and walking and aims to have everyone comfortably running three miles by the end of it.

In 2017 more than 40 beginners signed up and many went on to further challenges during the year.

Club chairman Terry Bewes said: “It was a fantastic take up and we had an incredible response by club members and run leaders who were so pleased to welcome new people along.”

The club is also offering an eight-week improvers’ course to anyone who has run before but needs an incentive to get going again, or solo runners who would like to progress with a group.

“We are a very friendly club and it’s amazing how quickly the miles are covered if you’re chatting,” said run leader Claire Ashby. “And the great thing about running in a group is that everyone knows a different route so as well as club nights around town we cover a huge variety of trails in this beautiful countryside.”

Both courses start at Sidmouth Sailing Club at 7pm on Wednesday (January 3). They cost £20, which includes club membership for the year.
