Stroud & District AC – Couch to 5k / Return to Running Group

We will be starting a new group next Monday 7th February and we still have a few places left.

The group will run from Archway School starting at 18:30

The course is a walk/run program that starts very gently and builds gradually over 6 weeks to be running 30 mins non-stop by the end of the 6 weeks. It is designed for complete beginners as well as previous runners who have got out of the habit and want to re-start.

When the course finishes, we would hope that you all feel comfortable with running and would then continue social running as part of our friendly club, normally twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from Archway School.


The course will require you to become a member of Stroud & District AC – this costs £20 / year and will need to be done before the course starts and will cover all running activities until April 2023. If you have been a member previously or have any issues, just let us know here and we will send you a renewal notice.

To register for the course, you will need to:

  • Become a Stroud & District AC Club member by completing the online form here, making the annual payment of £20.
  • Register your name for the beginners’ sessions here.

The first session will take place on Monday February 6th where we will get to meet you all and then start our Couch to 5k course.
