Want to get out running? We have groups that suit everyone!

Kent Sport runs a variety of running sessions as part of our ALL Active programme. Why not dust off those old trainers and get back to running. Whether you’re just starting out or a confident runner, we have adapted our sessions to suit everyone.

Beginners’ Running (Couch To 5K)

Our 10-week Couch to 5k program is perfect for those just starting out and will get you comfortably running each week, leading up to a 30 minutes run (approx. 5km) in just 10 weeks.

“The C25K programme helped me get back into running after stopping running due to an injury 6 years ago. C25K starts off really gently and can turn any couch potato into a park runner. This is a truly fantastic and motivational programme which is great for runners and non-runners of all levels – it’s also a lot of fun and a great way to socialise! Enormous thanks to Kirsty and Karen for helping me get back on the road again and for helping me to avoid injury”

Caitlin Melidonis, C25K graduate
