About Beginners Running Leicester-Shire & Rutland

Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport believe running / jogging is for everyone and is most fun when shared with others. Try one of our group runs to find out for yourself...

There are a number of local beginners running groups across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland offering beginner friendly running sessions and Couch to 5k groups, led by qualified and insured Run Leaders.

With the Couch to 5k Groups, if you are a complete beginner to running with a low level of fitness, where you can, try and start within the first 2 weeks. However if you have a base level of fitness you will be able to pick up further along the weeks - ask the Run Leader for more advice

Whether you want to lose weight, train for an event, or simply enjoy exercising with friendly people whilst exploring your local area, our beginners running groups offer something for everyone. Regular running can reduce your risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control. Running also helps to get rid of excessive adrenalin and other stress hormones, boosts your mood and keeps you fit.

Please contact us or the Run Leader prior to attending a listed session, so we can ensure you have the latest information about the group.
