Couch to 5K course
Victory AC aim to offer a couple of Couch to 5k courses each year, generally starting in January and again in September. Once you have completed the C25K course, you have the option to follow on with a 5-10k course.
Our next C25K course will start in September 2019, and run for 9 weeks with an optional follow on 5k-10k course.
All courses take place on Tuesday evenings at 6.30pm from Havant Leisure Centre.
Cost of the course is £20, which includes membership to Victory Athletic Club. The fee is payable on the first week of the course during a short registration session.
Come and join a really friendly group consisting of experienced coaches and catering for all speeds and goals.
The course follows the NHS 'Couch to 5k Scheme'. For more information and to download the training programme and podcasts visit NHS C25k page
Victory 'Couch to 5k' is a great course to get you started as a runner, or to help you pick back up the pace after a break from running through absence or an injury. By following the Government approved guidelines the course is designed to take you, over a period of nine weeks, from a walker to a confident 5k runner.
Each session will be a mix of walks and runs, which over the nine weeks will progress to shorter walks and longer runs, until you are confidently running the whole 5k distance!
Following on from the course is the Victory 5k to 10k which will allow you to use your new running skills to progress confidently to running 10k. This course focuses on continuous running and allows you to build up your distance and speed gradually over the duration of the course.
These courses are designed for adults, but juniors aged between 15-17 yrs (UJ's) are permitted to take part in both courses unaccompanied, as long as we have signed parental consent.
Juniors aged 12-14 yrs (AJ's) are permitted to join the V25k course only and must be accompanied by a parent or a designated responsible adult at all times.
