Get fit this Autumn with Sefton’s Couch to 5k course

13 September 2023 3 min read

Active Sefton have announced that their popular Couch to 5k programme will return next week.

Taking place every Monday and Wednesday at Litherland Sports Park, the ten-week course is designed to improve your fitness and encourage participants to find or rediscover a love of running.

The course starts on Monday 18th September and costs £10 in total, working out at just 50p per session.

The coach-led sessions will take place each week from 6-7pm and are perfect for those looking to get fit or build up stamina. Sessions are drop in, drop out, but it’s recommended that runners take part in as many as possible.

Running has lots of health benefits, from increasing joint strength, to improving heart and lung health. It can also boost your mood, and the sessions provide a great network of like-minded individuals.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Taking part in Active Sefton’s Couch to 5k is a great way to get fit and in shape

“As well helping to keep you in shape, the programme is also a great way to meet new people and make links with the local community. Good luck to everybody who decides to take part, and most importantly have fun!”
