Couch to 5K with Trawden AC

We usually run our C25K programme twice a year. We hope to start our next one at Seed Hill as once the Government and England Athletics Covid restrictions are sufficiently relaxed.

Couch to 5K is a nationally recognised plan devised to get those who have done little or no exercise in the past up to running 5km in just 9 weeks.

Trawden AC works with Pendle Leisure Trust to provide two FREE weekly 30-minute sessions. These are at 7.15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Seed Hill Track, Nelson, BB9 7TY .

You do not need to attend every session to make good progress and reach your 5K milestone, just come along as often as you can.

We have an absolutely fantastic team of run leaders and helpers who will support you every step of the way. Reaching 5K may seem like an impossible task, but if you come along and stick to the programme, with the help of our leaders and fellow C25K runners you'll be amazed at what you achieve!

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accommodate children under 12 years old and all those under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times during each session.

Over the past few years literally hundreds of local people have improved their fitness and health, lost weight, and gained a new found passion for running by being involved in our Couch to 5K groups. Many have since gone on to run 10Ks, fell races, half marathons and even marathons, and gone on to join the club too!
