Well, that was fun! I volunteered to join the C25k (Couch to 5k) group last night on their last run before their very first parkrun on Saturday. This group of novice runners have been meeting for the past 8 weeks (I think) and gradually building up their distance to the point that last night they ran for 30 minutes. I ran with one person who managed an amazing 13mm pace and without stopping for a breather once. Well done!
The group will now meet up on Saturday at Cannon Hill to run their first 5k! Apart from the fantastic organisation of the C25k programme led by Lee, KHRC will also be organising a running buddy for each of the group members to help them complete the parkrun. It’s really wonderful to see two fantastic community initiatives coming together like this, without a penny changing hands and all thanks to the kindness of volunteers.
Eeek! Just noticed on the right – 16 days to go!
