Beginners’ Course

Update Spring 2021

Due to the current restrictions, we do not know for sure if and when the Beginners’ Course will take place.

We do intend to run the course should it be feasible. Watch this space!

Beginners 2018The Bournville Harriers Beginners Course takes place once per year for six weeks, usually from the beginning of May. The 2020 course dates and details have not been announced as yet, as all group training runs are suspended in accordance with guidance from England Athletics owing to Covid-19 (Coronavirus).

For just £20, the course takes place on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:30pm at Rowheath Playing Fields. Our qualified running coaches and experienced runners will help you to take your first steps in running from 9th May all the way through to completing your first 5km (approx 3 mile) race on.
