BvH Beginners’ Running Course 🏃🏃🏃

Registration for our Beginners’ Running course 2023 is now closed. However, if you are looking for help with getting into running, please get in touch with our friendly team, and we’ll be happy to provide advice on how to get started and what resources are available.


The BvH Beginners’ Running Course 2023 starts on Monday 5th June, and will run for 8 weeks until the 27th July.

If you’ve had very little or no running experience but would like to try it in a friendly, safe and supportive outdoor environment, then our Beginners’ Running Course is perfect for you.

There will be two coached sessions per week on Monday and Thursday evenings starting at 7:15pm. All sessions will be led by fully qualified coaches and supported by our friendly and experienced runners. 

The aim of the course is to help you reach running a 5K distance. However, the sessions will be adapted according to abilities and progress. 

On Thursday 27th July, after the final session, you’ll have the opportunity to run your chosen distance and earn a coveted BvH medal.

The price for the course is £20.00.

After the completion of the beginners’ course, we also offer a transition group to support runners who wish to join the main Bournville Running Club. If you decide to join the club  after completing the course, your course fee will be deducted from the membership cost.
