These sessions are designed to provide people with the confidence to continue their running in a safe and unintimidating environment.  The schedule will build on the experience of running that exists within the group.  This might be about taking someone who is able to run a 5k up to 10k, or from 10k to 10 miles, or it might be about running a 5k quicker.  Individual goals will be discussed and agreed.
