NOTE: The 2017 Course is now full.
Please refer to our Training Page for information about our regular training sessions.
Our Beginners Course will start on Thursday 5th January 2017. If you’ve heard about it (or been along to it) before you will know that it’s a really popular course and a great deal of fun.
Booking is Essential
Places on the course are limited and booking is essential.
To maintain safety and to ensure we have sufficient leaders and physical space we simply have to restrict the size of group. Please book early.
The Beginners Course 2017 costs £28 and this will include membership Lymm Runners AND UK Athletics affiliation from the start of the course right through to March 31st 2018!
Joining a running club can seem a bit daunting if you’re not yet running – or not running very far. And how can you know if you’ll enjoy it / stick with it etc?
Don’t be put-off; we are a friendly bunch of runners, we are not all super-fit or super-fast, and we celebrate all those who are willing to give running a go.
As for not being sure if running is for you – well nobody can ever be sure, but if you want to get a taster of what we’re like why not come along one Tuesday evening soon and just join in? Tuesday evening training sessions are mixed ability sessions, everyone can work at their own pace and fitness level. You will get a feel for what goes on, meet a few of us, and hopefully realise that this is something you definitely want to be a part of. You are welcome to join us as a guest for a few of our regular sessions without any obligation to join as a member (or as a beginner!).
A registration list of course participants will be maintained. You will be asked to ‘tick-in’ at every session you attend. When you tick your name you are confirming presence and accepting you do so at your own risk.
Lymm Runners is a local running club affiliated to UKA. We are organised by a committee, and sessions are led by UKA Licensed run leaders and coaches – all of whom are volunteers. Our public liability insurance is provided by UKA and we are asked by the UKA to maintain a register of participants at training sessions we offer.
Newsletters & Club Communication
As part of the Beginners Course you will receive a weekly email newsletter. It contains a round-up of the week’s progress, highlights what’s coming up and provides important news about the club and local running events.
With club membership, UKA affiliation, emailed newsletters, course registers etc there are a lot of forms and, potentially, a lot of data. Our Data Protection Policy is available on this website. We never pass on your data to any third party (other than UKA via their partner organisation Active Cheshire as stated in our policy).
