This course has now started and as such is now closed to any prospective beginners.
However, don’t despair if you’ve missed the course for this year, as one of our England Athletics coaches, Greg Davis, has put together the following guide that will help get you to a sufficient level where you will be able to join some of the Club’s main training sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday night.
Before you do, though, we ask that you contact Greg ahead of your first full training session with the Club, just to make sure he is fully aware of where you’re up to with your training and can advise accordingly.
The Beginners Course- Starts in early January every year
The course is a structured, 10 week programme, based on a successful England Athletics formula, meeting on Monday evenings at Newmarket Leisure Centre in the Foyer at 6.15pm and will run weekly at the same time/location for the remainder of the course.
A high viz bib/vest will be mandatory on all sessions. These are available for loan if you don’t have one.
All you need to start is a desire to start running and comfortable clothing, don’t worry if you don’t have specialist running attire – as long as you have trainers of some sort and gym/training gear you’re ready!
The course is aimed at helping new runners take up the sport and encourage those who no longer run to get back up and running again. There will be male and female “Leaders in Running Fitness” who are all UKA (United Kingdom Athletics) trained and are all very experienced runners who will support and share their experiences with you and help get you started and develop your fitness and skills throughout the course. All our coaches although now experienced runners, were once beginners who have trodden a similar path and are keen to share their passion and knowledge of the sport with you.
The cost of the 10 week course is £40.00 payable by 9th January online. This will also entitle you to 1 year membership of Newmarket Joggers (optional after 10 weeks)
Please contact Greg with any questions.
