Get moving with ABC Couch to 5K

August 19, 2023

Go from couch to crossing the finish line of a 5K run with the ‘Couch to 5K’ programme, starting this September at Armagh, Banbridge and Lurgan!

Delivered by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Couch to 5K is an 8-week programme, which starts with a combination of walking and running to gradually develop fitness and stamina and work towards the end goal of completing a 5K run.

Taking up running can be daunting, particularly for complete beginners, but with the right support and guidance from qualified instructors on the programme, taking the first step to getting fit is made easier.

For £32 participants will receive two coached sessions from qualified instructors each week, a T-shirt, and a medal upon completion of the programme.

Participants also have the option of completing the programme virtually for free, allowing you to train around your own schedule, with access to weekly training plans, tips and inspirational messages from the programme instructors.

All participants are encouraged, where possible, to partner with a family member or friend for additional support and encouragement along the journey.

The programme will commence Monday 11 September at the following locations:

  • The Mall, Armagh: Every Monday and Wednesday, 7pm-7:45pm.
  • Silverwood Arena, Lurgan: Every Monday and Wednesday, 6.30pm-7:15pm.
  • Solitude Park, Banbridge: Every Tuesday and Thursday, 6.30pm-7:15pm.
