Make 2024 your year to move more

December 21, 2023

With the New Year comes a clean slate and an opportunity to get fit! Eight weeks is all it takes to complete the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s winter running programme – Couch to 5K!

Taking up running can be daunting, particularly for beginners, but with the right support and guidance from qualified instructors, you can do it! The programme 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.

Commencing from Monday 15 January, the programme will run for eight weeks at Lurgan, Portadown and Banbridge:

  • Silverwood Arena, Lurgan: Every Monday and Wednesday at 6.30pm.
  • Portadown People’s Park: Every Monday and Thursday at 6.30pm.
  • Solitude Park, Banbridge: Every Tuesday and Thursday at 6.30pm.

At a cost of £32, participants will receive two weekly coached sessions from qualified instructors, complete a third weekly session by themselves, and pick up 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.

Participants are encouraged to buddy up with a family member or friend so that they can support each other throughout the programme.

Take the first step to a fitter you.
