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, develop a new hobby 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, just a fun way to get into running.

Your Run Leaders are . . .

In association with Run England, our beginners are looked after by Beth and our team of qualified Run Leaders.

When, how long, how much?

We welcome beginners 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. We welcome anyone to try us out for free, no pressure, to see if Beaumont is the running club for them.

Have a target? We can help you achieve it

You can choose the type of running and training that best suits your ability – we welcome anyone to run with us, whether you’ve never ran before, wanting motivation to run regularly or looking to train for your first or next race.

Don’t worry if you are unsure what type of training is suitable for you – just pop along for a chat any Monday or Thursday evening at 6.45pm (or contact us as below).

We support beginners who wish to take part at (Braunstone) parkrun and we are happy to find you morale-boosting local 5k or 10k races.
