Running group on its marks

A NEW running club for complete beginners is starting up at Blyth Sports Centre.

The sessions – which begin on Friday, January 28, from 10am – will be led by Alison Lowes who has recently become a qualified ‘Run In England’ leader. 

Beginners will take things very much at their own pace, and the group will encourage people of all abilities and ages to try running.

It is all part of the ‘Run in England’ scheme which is aimed at newcomers, or anyone who has not put their tracksuit and trainers on for many years.

This is definitely not for more experienced runners, but gives everyone the chance to take some regular exercise without feeling as if they have been left behind.

The scheme is backed by England Athletics.

Everyone is welcome to join up, whatever your age, size or ability.
