Beginner Running with Tavistock Athletic Club

Our Couch to 5k programme is designed to support you whatever your current level of activity and fitness.

  • If you’re someone who has done little to no physical activity before we can help.
  • If you have exercised previously and want to take that step back to fitness we can help you too

Our UKA qualified coaches and leaders will support you throughout. The sessions will gradually build your fitness and your confidence and will finish when you run a measured 5km by taking on the Tavy 5k event.

Everyone (16+) is welcome – there is no upper age limit.  We meet at the Tavistock Athletic Club running track at Tavistock College at 8:50am every Saturday morning for a 9am start.  Just bring your trainers and any clothes you’re comfortable exercising in.

We also have regular run groups that go out on Tuesday's and Thursday evenings all year. There are beginner groups that are increibly supportive and cater for people starting out with a jog/walk mix.
