This is Portsmouth Joggers Club C25K. It is a 9 week programme designed to take you from novice runner to 30 minutes continuous running (and completing a 5km run). The graduation event is the free to enter Lakeside parkrun, (free registration with parkrun.org.uk required for a registered 5km time) and all graduates receive a medal from the club.
How to Register : please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with Subject title PJC – C25K.
What standard do I need to be? Any, some of our previous graduates couldn’t run for even a full minute when they started.
I can already run 5K or more: then you will probably find one of our regular groups more suitable, contact email@example.com for more information.
Where do You Meet : We meet at Lakeside 1000 main reception, at 6.45 for a 7.00 pm start. Click here for directions and car parking details.
