Our 2017 Zero to Hero programme starts this Thursday and we are expecting a large turnout!
Last year’s course was hugely successful and our qualified Run Leaders are once more ready to inspire and support newcomers to train them to go from zero to being able to take on a 3 mile run. The course lasts for 8 weeks and will guide people new to running through a step by step programme to build up their fitness and confidence to run for 3 miles or do a 5km parkrun.
