Complete the Couch to 5K course with Juice

Colleagues at the Hillsborough Parkrun in December 2019.

Looking to get into running this new year?

Running is great for your physical and mental wellbeing but can often feel quite daunting for beginners. Juice offer a free 11-week Couch to 5K course that will take you from being a complete beginner to completing a Parkrun at Hillsborough Park on Saturday 4 April.

The sessions start with a mixture of running and walking and the amount of running gradually increases over the weeks. You can go completely at your own speed – in the last course the leader walked at the back of the group all through the course!

This will be the 16th Juice Couch to 5K course and over the past five years, more than 70 colleagues have completed a Parkrun through the group. If you're looking to become more active, the Couch to 5K course is a great way to improve fitness in a supportive environment.

Here's what some colleagues thought about the course:

"Finally got me into running, I have been trying for years to start but Sammy's Couch to 5k worked! Both the people and Sammy make this course great, I would definitely recommend it regardless of current fitness level."

"This is an excellent course for anyone who wants to start running. If you'd told me six months ago I would not only be doing a Parkrun but be looking forward to it, I'd have laughed at you. Now I feel I'm quite capable of running non-stop for 30 minutes a couple of times a week. Sammy is an excellent instructor who is very encouraging no matter what your level. Would highly recommend the Juice Couch to 5K."

"Sammy has been a really brilliant and supportive coach throughout this programme. I was really not confident in my ability to run, and have previously tried c25k on my own unsuccessfully, but the supportive juice group helped me to stick at it this time and my fitness has massively improved."
