There is a gradual progression from a lot of walking with little running to a little walking with a lot more running by the end of the course. As everyone is unique our team of helpers will help you achieve your goal even though, for some, it may mean extending the course in order to suit. Holidays, family commitments etc. may slow progress. If you’re committed then so are we.
You will be given a basic, weekly course plan and you will be supported along the way.
Applications should be made on line.
