Couch to 5k launching in Southport

Active Sefton has announced that its hugely successful Couch to 5k programme will be heading to Southport next week.

 Taking place every Tuesday and Thursday, from 6-7pm, at Hesketh Park, the classes will run for 10 weeks from May 1.

On street parking is available and classes will meet at the greenhouse near the lake.

 The free sessions are perfect training for those looking to prepare for a summer running event and will help attendees slowly build up to running 5K at their own pace. Classes are drop in, drop out but it is recommended that runners take part in as many as possible.

 At the end of the programme all runners will be invited to take part in the Southport Park Run on Saturday, July 7.

 Running has many health benefits, including improved heart and lungs; and when combined with a healthy diet can result in weight loss. A more active life style is also known to improve mental health and can act as a great stress reliever.
