Are you ready to get going?
Born To Run Liverpool is looking to encourage anyone who would like to take up running to join them on their first steps by signing up to their Get Going Campaign which starts on Thursday, 31st January.
The Get Going Campaign is not challenging and is free. It is an ideal opportunity to get people interested in jogging and will involve simple classes to encourage a combination of walking and jogging over a set one mile distance.
The idea is to get people mobile and comfortable enough to take on a mile distance.
Get Going classes will take place every Tuesday and Thursday at 1.00pm staring from Hatton Garden in Liverpool city centre. Participants will begin by walking and jogging the distance and over a period of time reduce the walking element and increase the jogging distance until the full one mile can be completed without walking.
Upon the successful completion of a one mile jog a btr certificate of attainment will be awarded.
There is no set period of time to achieve the one mile distance and you can take as many classes as you like. Each month it will be possible to see if participants can complete the one mile course with one mile test runs will take place on the last Thursday of every month.
Anyone wishing to take part will need to confirm they are sufficiently fit to take on the activity.
