Beginners Courses

Ware Joggers are keen to encourage anyone that may be interested in taking up running. We have been running 10 week courses aimed at the complete beginner since 1992. Our UK Athletics qualified coaches run the courses and they have a wealth of experience working with all levels of runners from complete beginners to marathon runners. We also have a number of very experienced club runners who assist with the training when required.

During this course, participants will come to realise that jogging is a great way to improve fitness. The beginner's course incorporates walking and jogging which builds up cardiovascular and muscular endurance to become fit safely. Over the 10 weeks, participants can work at their own pace in both a supportive and welcoming environment.

Beginners Course Fees:

The courses cost £40 for which beginners receive 10 weeks training, a technical t-shirt on graduation, membership of Ware Joggers and corporate membership of Wodson Park.

Wodson Park is a community sports centre and a registered charity. We have a long-standing agreement with the centre for free use of the facilities on club nights in return for our members also becoming members of Wodson Park. Membership entitles the holder to discounted rates for all activities including aerobic classes, gym entry and hall hire. Members are also entitled to entry the cafe and members bar

Many of our members who have come through the training programme have gone on to become very accomplished runners. Our eldest member, now in his 80s, came through our training programme and has gone on to complete 12 marathons, also one of our female beginners has now completed over 250 marathons!

There are usually three courses a year in September, March and May and we like to keep the numbers on the course to a maximum of 20.
