Couch to 5k

Congratulations to Ruth and Paula on completing the Couch to 5k programme. Their progress was hampered by successive lockdowns and even the celebratory run has been postponed because of Covid. But, undeterred and supported every step of the way by Richard Chandler, Ruth and Paula kept on going and have now succeeded in running 5k non stop (and at rather a cracking pace, if they’re still as fast as when I last risked a run with them!) . Well done to both of them and a big thank you to Richard for coaching them to success.
We still hope to support Ruth and Paula when park runs recommence – hopefully not too long to wait!

On the run since 1983
