The Sports Development Team has recently arranged a series of free running groups aimed at people who want to take up running for the first time or who want to get back into the sport. The groups are designed with the beginner in mind and are co-ordinated by trained licensed running Leaders.
The following running groups will take place on a weekly basis at the following times and venues:
· Witton Park Astro Turf Car Park every Wednesday at 7pm with Chris Hayes.
· Darwen Vale BRSA every Saturday at 10am with Samantha Fleck.*
· Witton Park Pavilion every Saturday at 10am with Linda Rusyn.*
· Darwen Leisure Centre Foyer every Monday at 6.30pm with Sarah Roberts.
The runs will follow broadly similar routes around the area of the meeting point. These routes will not be ‘overly’ challenging and will be perfect for anyone who is looking to take up running for the first time or get back into the sport.
If you are thinking of taking up running and want to get fit and healthy, why not join our free Run England running group, where people of all running abilities are welcome to take part just for the enjoyment of running. Why not bring along a friend for extra encouragement! All are welcome to turn up!
