Beginners - Get Running

Are you envious of runners? Do you wish you could be one of them? Do you lack the motivation, time or the confidence to start? Well, it’s time to stop putting it off any longer. We are here to help.

Don’t start a couch-to-5k app AGAIN and give up after a few weeks. Instead, come join us as we get you started running, and most importantly, enjoying running. 

Designed and led by Mary Jennings, the author of Get Running, our beginners programme will have you running for 30 minutes non-stop in 7 weeks. 

Next Start dates: We start 12th September in Sandymount (Dublin) for a 7 week programme that will have you running 5k by Halloween - yes - even you! Sign up

Is it for me? This programme is suitable for complete beginners or those returning to running post injury, post natal, or indeed after just a long break! If you can run about 10 minutes or more, you would be better joining our more advanced funrun classes. 

How it works: Over 7 weeks Mary will introduce you to running, build your confidence, strength, endurance and enjoyment of running. Covering good technique, breathing tips, clothing questions and all the practicalities you will be guided week by week from 1 minute running on Day 1 right up to 30 minutes running non stop.

Have fun: As per all our coaching, there is no competition between our runners. We are all there to support each other and encourage others in their running goal. We all have different challenges and responsibilities these days, and it's great to have others on our side. There is enough stress and anxiety out there, we want to make running something that will take your mind off your worries and help you get some headspace. 

Student Stories: Over 2,800 newbies have learnt to run with us. Check out our testimonials.
