At woMEn TIME we have different levels of group running aimed to suit all individuals whilst still being sociable and non- competitive.

SheRuns Beginner– this has been adapted from our original class couch to 5km. It is aimed at the new runner who is learning about basic running techniques such as intervals and hill training. You will be in a group of a similar ability so there is no need to be worried and you get regular breaks. This will not be a continuous run so please don’t feel you will be left behind or you need to attend the class with a set fitness level.

SheRuns Intermediate/advanced– this class is aimed at the more experience runner who is looking to push to the next level. We ask that you are able to complete a 5km run but don’t state the time this needs to be done in. The session will still look at training techniques such a intervals, hills, fartlek and heart rate zone training. The class is not based on speed so please feel welcomed regardless of the time it takes you to complete a run.
