Couch to 5k

Havant Borough Council is working in partnership with local running coaches to deliver 'Couch to 5K' beginner running courses. The 9 week programme, which follows the NHS 'Couch to 5K Scheme', is ideal for those who have done no running previously and enables participants to gradually make the transition from walking to being able to run 3 miles by the end of the programme. With an emphasis on fun, socialising and making steps to being healthy, the course is perfect for absolute beginners. The courses are for residents age 18 and above.
