The majority of RV members have completed the beginner's running course, they have come to RV as absolute non-runners, just ordinary people who thought they'd like to give it a go. The hardest bit is figuring out when to train in your busy life and getting out the front door. Once you've got this sorted and you've got a supportive coach and group to go to, then goals really aren't out of the reach of anyone.
Here are a few images of RV members achieving goals that they never thought would be possible when they first started out on their journey or run a minute walk a minute. We have regulars at local parkruns, members who meet up at the weekend for a training run and now a great team who are training together for their first spring marathon.
Even if you've had the tineest of thoughts that you might like to try running then come along to the RV Beginner's Courses starting in September. We have a morning and evening one in Fareham on a Monday and a Tuesday evening one in Whiteley. The courses are progressive, we start off with a run/walk programme and you are coached on how to run so that you stay motivated and injury free. The course costs £64 for the 8 weeks and includes online support, coaching advice, training plans and articles to help you progress. Be extraordinary.
