SANDWELL Leisure Trust is running its fourth free Couch to 5K initiative in May – in the leafy green surroundings of West Smethwick Park.
Back by popular demand, the nine-week course sees non-runners start from scratch and collectively build up to managing 5,000 metres together. The only stipulation is that you need to be aged 14 or over and that you do commit to the full nine weeks to properly reap the benefits.
It follows similar successful schemes held in Oldbury, Tipton and Cradley Heath, which attracted record numbers of participant sign ups and retention rates twice above the national average.
This fitness and mental wellbeing programme with a difference is being led by Simon Bryan, who is assistant manager for the Trust’s Hadley Stadium and Harry Mitchell Leisure Centre in Smethwick, plus Tipton Sports Academy.
