(our Couch to 5k)


Update Jan-24:  Right now we currently have no Pub-2-5k events planned for 2024 but our Coaches and Run Leaders operate a run/walk jeffing session on Club Nights welcoming new and returning runners and adults who prefer this to straight up running.  

Give us a try; either contact us via our Facebook page or alternatively let us know when you plan to attend your first run by emailing so that we can arrange one of our team to meet you.

What is Pub2parkrun?

This is Marple Runners version of C25K. The difference is we support you over 2 sessions a week (aside from Bank Holidays) and then we all finish in style at Marple parkrun, celebrating your achievement and reaching your goal.

Unlike C25K which completes at 30minutes running - Here at Marple Runners we understand that this is generally not the case - certainly not for many of our p2p'ers and there is no pressure to achieve a 30min 5K. (Phew we hear you say!)

Who is it for?

This course is for adults and is ideal for a complete novice who has never run before, to a runner who maybe hasn't run for a long time and needs some structure and company to get back to running. Don't worry if you feel unfit, too old, too tired etc - we are here to support you. 

How does it work?

We run on Mondays and Wednesdays (except Bank Holidays) and will be meeting at 6:30pm. We will always do a warm up before the main session and a cool down afterwards to avoid injury. There is a home work run - you should be running 3 times a week ideally. Many of our participants choose to get together over a weekend to do the homework run - we provide a private facebook page where you can discuss and help each other. This is where we will post lots of information too.

We have a group of club coaches and run leaders who attend each club session and will be there to guide you through the programme. We often also have ex-pub2parkrunners who come and join in with some sessions too and can give you first hand experience and proof that it works and you CAN do it - no matter what you might think beforehand! (We've all been there!)

When is the next course?

Our 2023 course finished with the class completinga sunny graduation parkrun in Brabyns Park on 13th May 2023. The next 10 week course is in planning for 2024 on dates to be announced so watch this space to confirm a place.  

How much is the programme? 

The programme costs just £30.00 to be supported over the 10 weeks. 

You will also automatically be entitled to discounted membership fees for the first year of joining Marple Runners.
