Welcome to #MileShyClub Nottingham!
Our Monday session
Meeting point: The Hemlock Stone pub, 1 Bramcote Ln, Nottingham NG8 2QQ
6.30pm (start date 11th June 2018)
Cost: £2 a session, no need to book in advance, just turn up
Starting with a fun group warm up, runners are placed into groups depending on ability (ranging from complete beginners to 5k runners). A run/walk session is then completed along a set 2.5k route. The session includes teaching points on how to run, and taught cool down stretches afterwards. Afterwards, we offer optional homework to our runners, which if completed, means runners can progress to the next level. If runners attend every session and complete all homework, we expect them to be completing their first 5k in 9 weeks.
Runners who complete the programme will attend a celebratory ParkRun with the #MileShyClub to complete their first 5k! Subject to club funds, we will endeavour to provide all finishers with goody bags.
Meet our coaches
Started running: Just before I could walk!
Favourite race: The Uganda International Marathon – combining running, travel, philanthropy and inspirational people
Proudest running moment: Chatting to Claire Lomas after a half marathon she had organised in Melton Mowbray to raise money and awareness for the National Spinal Injury Foundation (NSIF). Claire is paralysed and completed the London Marathon and Great North Run in a robotic suit. Possibly the most inspirational person I have ever met.
