Over the last 9 weeks, our Learn-2-Run group have progressed from running for just 1 minute up to 30 minutes continuously, culminating in a graduation parkrun. Usually, we head off to Rother Valley, but as it was cancelled due to a race for life event, we descended on Poolsbrook parkrun instead. A few of the group had run parkrun previously, but for some it was their first ever 5k; their success is best summed up by the parkrun round up below.
“This is the Sheffield Running Club Learn 2 Run group who started from nothing 9 weeks ago and have gradually been building up to a 5k. They were at Poolsbrook today to finally graduate up to a 5k run without stopping. From couch to a 5k in the space of 9 weeks is an amazing achievement. Well done to each and every one.”
The group now progresses into regularly running 5K or longer on our club training nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
