Derby Joggers (part of Jog Derbyshire) offer FREE Couch to 5k 9-week courses designed for beginners to gradually build up their running ability so they can eventually run 5km without stopping.  They are open to everyone, not just Livewell clients.  

The plan involves three runs each week - you can choose to attend one group session and complete two other runs independently or attend both of the groups!  The groups are led by Jog Derbyshire leaders, who are also Livewell volunteers and have been through the course themselves.  Find out more about the course by reading the Derby Joggers Couch to 5k Information Sheet.

Each group also offers gentle running sessions on the same day/time (offered all year round) as a progression route for graduates or for those with some jogging experience.  Running trainers are essential to take part.

The next courses will start w/c 12 September 2022

Mondays (starting 12 September) at 6pm from Pride Leisure/DW Sports Car Park (Pride Park)

Thursdays (starting 15 September) at 6pm from Springwood Leisure Centre in Oakwood
