We have a thriving beginners program at Beaumont RC with excellent coaches and run leaders to get you running no matter what level you are starting from. Our focus is on helping you to achieve your running goals but most of all to help you enjoy your running.

Many of our recent beginners have gone on to become active members taking part in league races and completing half marathons and marathons.

Beginners? Start here

Are you . . .

Looking to keep fit, lose weight and meet new people? Thinking of joining a running club but not sure if you can hack the pace?

No worries . . .

No need to worry – just come along and join our Beginners Group at Beaumont Running Club!

No pressure . . .

We believe that running should be a sport enjoyed by individuals at every level. So our Beginners Group is dedicated to helping new runners who want to gradually get into it, starting at a slower/more realistic pace with no pressure and no times, we’re just offering a fun way to get into running.

Your Run Leaders are . . .

In association with Run England, the Group is organised by Jackie Davisworth and Gareth Wilkins (our qualified Running Leaders) and their easy-going team.

When, how long, how much?

The course runs continuously throughout the year.

In the Summer months from April – September we are based at Bradgate Park (Newtown Linford car park).

In the darker Winter months from September to April we are based at Braunstone Leisure Centre (just off Hinckley Road A47).

Our aim is to meet every Monday at 6.45pm, for a 7.00pm start. Each session lasts about half an hour. We make a nominal charge of £2 per person per week – with no minimum number of sessions.

Have a target? We can help you achieve it

You can choose the 10-week course that best suits your ability:

  • Beginners Couch to 5km
  • Improvers 5km to 10km program

Don’t worry if you are unsure which course is for you – just pop along for a chat any Monday evening at 6.45pm (or contact us as below).

We support Beginners who wish to take part in the Saturday Braunstone parkrun and we find you morale-boosting local 5k or 10k races.
