The Starter Group


7.00pm on a Monday and Thursday, 9:15am Saturday (track)

Monday – Fairlands Valley Car Park, Fairlands Way by the Mini Maze.

On Thursday there is a three mile social run from Stevenage Cricket and Hockey Club, which is suitable for Starters. We meet in the Lower Ladies changing rooms.

On Saturdays at Ridlins starters are very welcome to join the rest of the club for the weekly track session (click here for a map). Sessions are run at individuals preferred pace so these sessions are very suitable for all runners.

The Starter Group is for anybody who wants to begin running, who wants to learn how to start. We take the complete beginner and build up to approximately 5km distance over several weeks. The sessions are informal and fun, participants can do as much or as little as they wish, through a combination of running and walking. There is always a minimum of two coaches or experienced runners present at each session to provide advice and encouragement.

Due to the popularity of theStarter Group we meet throughout the year and in all weathers.

Everybody is welcome to all the sessions, and there is no pressure on you to join the club, come and give us a try before deciding or you can contact Tessa on 07870960174 or email:
