The DTPT RunClub started in May of 2012. This beginners class started in the summer aiming to get people started off from a low fitness levels or not much experience in running the confidence to run distance while getting fit in a fun, relaxed group environment.
In September 2012 the class moved to twice a week with Karen taking up a Wednesday night class. Kevin took up the Wednesday class and has been kept everyone motivated during the summer months in 2013. I now take both classes throughout the week.
Participants don’t need to have any running experience to take part, just the will to improve! Once a month I hold a testing day where everyone completes either a mile or half a mile as quick as they can. The time is then matched against their previous efforts to see how much quicker they were.
