The Taunton Couch to 5K coaches have seen over 400 "couchers" start the programme over the past few years. Perfect for beginners, the FREE 8-week training schedule is approx. 30-45 minutes a session, three times a week, the 2nd and 3rd session in any week being a solo session or with friends / group (a total of 23 sessions + a 5K graduation run). Club sessions are every Tuesday/Thursday lead by our experienced C25K coaches. We ask you to comply with group leaders whistle or instructions at all times, to ensure your safety and fitness throughout the programme. The programme includes guidance on breathing, running technique and advice on niggles as your body adjusts to your new regime – please ensure your group leader knows of any health or breathing problems, niggles or pain BEFORE, DURING or AFTER the session. Download the "Beginners Guide" on the button above for a primer.
All graduates receive a medal and certificate to commemorate their achievement.
After 8 weeks of training in what has been the hottest summer in years, the couchers finally enjoy a 5K graduation run around Longrun Meadow at 11:00 am on Sunday the 7th of August. One or two have left the programme during those 8 weeks and we hope that they will give it another go during the cooler months of the Autumn.
After the first session you will be allocated a group that roughly matches your current ability
