Couch to 5k success

Over the last 8 weeks, staff from The Community Housing Group have been participating in their own Couch to 5k programme.  

This is an 8 week plan designed for beginners, to get just about anyone off the sofa and build their running ability so they can eventually run 5km without stopping.

It involved not only an organised run each week, but they had to do two additional runs during the week on their own.

Upon completing their 8 week programme, nine members of staff took on the local Wyre Forest Parkrun on Saturday 28 October 2017.

They all completed the tough course in fantastic times and all deserve a pat on the back for such an achievement.  You can view their results on Wyre Forest Parkrun - Results

Parkrun is a series of 5km runs held on Saturday mornings in areas of open space around the UK. They are open to all, free, and are safe and easy to take part in. To find out more about Wyre Forest Parkrun please visit: Wyre Forest Parkrun - homepage
