What Past Participants Say

I joined Rookie Running in February. I hadn’t run much before so I wasn’t excited about joining, but knew I needed more exercise. To my surprise, I really enjoyed it. The coaches are very warm and encouraging, and the whole group was accepting of the vast range of abilities represented. The coaches are one of the most nurturing group of women I’ve ever met, and they really know their stuff. They were pro-active about learning what difficulties, injuries or niggles we rookies were experiencing, and had lots of good suggestions about how to overcome them. I highly recommend doing this course!”
