Some photos of the first Winterslow Couch to 5 K

This is a 10 week course costing £40 sessions last upto 45 minutes, you will get homework to complete 

If you are looking to progress with your running I run a running group in Winterslow, this is on a Monday night at 6:30pm. We meet/start outside of Winterslow School at a cost of just £2.50 per session

some reviews of the couch to 5km course 

Thank you so much Darren for 10 weeks of encouragement. you've pushed us all and I cant believe I've actually completed the course and can jog/walk 5km. I would highly recommend this course to anyone regardless of skill level. I couldn't jog for 2 minutes in the first week and now I can complete a 5km distance. Looking forward to continuing under your guidance at Winterslow Running Club!Clare

Never thought I would enjoy running rather than enduring it! Great group and a great place to run too!Really pleased with the progress we’ve all made - wouldn’t have been possible without your guidance and initiative in the first place or without the support of the group from week to week. Strongly recommend this as a way to get from couch to 5K! Looking forward to continuing the journey too!Claire

We started 9 th September and tonight 4 th November we realized what we have achieved under the leadership of one man , thank you Darren , we will have better lives due to you . In future we will worry less and run more , thank you


I honestly never thought that I would be able to run for more than 5 minutes, let alone run 5k and actually enjoy it, so thank you Darren. This course has given me the motivation I needed to keep pushing myself. I am now looking forward to continuing my training with the running group.Joanne

Thank you from me too. I have really enjoyed the course despite being plagued by injuries and am glad that I reached my goal in the end! It has been fun running in a group, much more enjoyable than on your own. Hopefully see you at the Monday sessions Nicola
