TRAINING

There are hundreds of training plans available, the key is to find the one the works for you, here are a couple of suggestions from the volunteer team.

BEGINNER

You equate running with torture, but you want to raise money for the shelter and get healthy. You used to run, but it’s been years. You were inspired to run one morning last year, but you went too fast and too far. If any of this sounds familiar, the “Couch to 5K” program may be for you. This introductory runner’s program has inspired countless new runners around the world to find the joy in running.

The NHS version of the plan can be found here.

INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED

You have run a number of races or you’re a seasoned veteran, you want to improve your time and want a training program that will challenge you. We like the Hal Higden 8-week training plans, you can find them here.
