Participant Info for the Plans Starting on Mon 3rd April 2023

We cannot wait to see you all!

A massive warm welcome awaits all our new participants for our next Couch to 5K, Sport Walking, Social and Progression Run Groups!

We will be meeting on the main car park which is accessed from the traffic lights on Preston Old Road. Car parking on this car park is charged at 60p per visit. The machines accept cards but be early as the car park fills quickly.

The postcode for sat nav is BB2 2TP

Once you arrive on the car park it will be very obvious where we are located.


If you haven’t registered yet, you can complete your registration here.


You can view all our teams at this link.

Allocating you to your Group

In relation to teams and participants, we will allocate you to your group on Monday evening down at the park.

If you’re not going to be there for the first session, just come and see John or Rick when you do come down and we’ll allocate you to your group.

This programme is very different from others and we’re going to try and ensure that the splits are even across the groups.

To achieve this, the order of the groups leaving the park for all sessions is as follows: –

  • Sport Walking
  • 5k Social Runners
  • 5k to 10k Progression Group
  • C25K groups 1-5

NOTE: We will try and place you with your preferred Run Leader. However, we need to ensure that there is an equal balance of numbers across all our groups, so we ask that you work with us on this and respect where you are allocated.

Please remember, that although you may have an affiliation with a particular leader, you will soon build a similar, if not better one, with another – they’re all pretty amazing!

Each Session

If you can all try and be in the compound where we meet by 6:45pm it would be a huge help, Groups will start leaving the park at 7PM prompt each evening. Remember, it’s going to be busy, the car parks will be full and there will be queues for the parking meters (60p)

Hi Viz Tops

As we’re running/jogging/walking in the evening when daylight is fading, you need reflective running clothing/hi viz gear to ensure you remain visible to others, especially to drivers and cyclists. Please make sure that your hi viz clothing is reflective when lights are shined on it.

You can get them quite cheaply from pound shops, workwear outlets or sports direct.
