Brough Park Running ClubCouch to 5K
Brough Park Running Club has a ‘Couch to 5K’ program designed to suit almost anyone.
We aim to transform you from couch potato to runner by allowing you to build up through a variety of distances: 0.95K, 1.6K, 2.3K and 3.65K up to 5K over as many weeks as it takes.
So, get off the couch and start to get fit or fitter through running, jogging or even walking within the pleasant, traffic free parkland of Brough Park in Leek.
Many of our members take part to improve their fitness and get faster and others who come along for enjoyment, to socialise with friends and family.
There are individuals, partners, friends, workmates, groups and families, in addition to club runners who take part.
However, you don’t have to take part every week, feel free to dip in and out as you wish.
The events take place every Saturday morning at 9am for a one off fee of just £8 which covers the purchase of a personal RFID wristband with annual insurance of £3 payable from April 2022.
Children under 16 are issued with a wristband for free or their parents can make a donation on their behalf.
All ages and abilities are welcome in this multi-distance, combined event; the RFID actuates the recording mechanism of every entrant and as they pass the receiver at the start or as they cross the finish line.
We monitor weekly progress, publish results, progress sheets, on the day photos and an event report.
Junior attendance trophies are presented from their accumulated 25 th event and thereafter up to their 200 th attendance.
In addition, during British Summertime time alteration, there is an extra training event at 6 pm on Wednesdays at the same venue. Brough Park is situated off Vicarage Road in Leek, ST13 6AT. There are facilities, such as ample, free parking near to the venue, with the adjacent leisure centre kindly providing: toilet facilities and first aid; but please do not bring any vehicles inside the park.
