Information for Beginners

Billericay Striders Running Club are pleased to welcome anyone who is either new to running or is contemplating making a start. We have a 'Beginners / Improvers' Group which meets on Thursday evenings at Hannakins Farm Community Centre at 7pm.

The next structured 10 week course, aimed at complete beginners or anyone returning from a lengthy break from running, will start on November 2nd 2017.
There will be a one off fee of £25 (payable to Billericay Striders RC) for this course. However, this will also entitle participants to a £10 discount off the regular membership subscription, if/when they decide to join the Club, either during, or at the conclusion of the programme.

Here's a message from the Beginner's Coach, Keith Walker:-

If you ever wanted to start running, but have always thought that joining a Club was a bit daunting, then this introductory course is just for you. Our aim is to get you running at least 5K comfortably, by the end of the 10 week programme. I have, so far, never failed to achieve this goal with any member of my Group! 




Anyone keen to get into running can contact the Beginners Coach who will be pleased to discuss their options for getting started with the Striders.
