Couch to 5k

Couch to 5k

We started our first C25K on Thursday 4th January and the response we had was absolutely amazing!

65 People turned up ready to begin their running journey with us on week one, and as the weeks went on the number grew, along with the enthusiasm! Even reaching 90 runners on one week!

On our first run I felt like the Pied Piper with the amount of people following behind. The scene and atmosphere around the ‘Poundbury loop’ that evening was electric, not to mention the camaraderie and determination of the runners.

Over the following 12 weeks the progress continued, homework was set, completed and activities shared on Strava.

Seeing our runners go from strength to strength has left us feeling a great sense of achievement, being able to help everyone progress at their own pace no matter what age, sex or size is one of the most rewarding experiences and one of the reasons we started RIOT.

A massive well done to all of those that completed the programme, you should be very proud of yourselves and we look forward to you continuing your running journey with us at Dorchester RIOT.

For those of you yet to begin your journey our next course will be held in the summer, so please keep an eye out on our facebook Page.
