Get running with Couch to 5k

Taking up running can seem like a scary prospect, especially if you feel out of shape or unfit.


But, did you know that regular running can help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke, boost your mood and keep your weight under control?


The couch to 5k plan is designed to get you off the couch and gradually work you up to running 5k or half an hour, in just nine weeks.
