  • Small groups so you get personal attention and a dedicated beginner coach. 
  • Running technique advice personal to YOU.

Absolutely no experience is necessary, all you need is a sense of humour and a decent bra. Our tried & tested course eases you into jogging starting with just 30 seconds at a time. All beginners courses meet at Hollybush Recreation Ground in Sevenoaks, there are toilets, free parking and a lovely cafe for a hot drink at the end of your run.

We leave promptly at 9.15 and start with our tried and tested SLJ warm up. After this we do our jog session, this is a jog/walk programme which has been perfected over the last 13 years of running these courses, and it works!! You will be back at Hollybush by about 10.40am. 

At the end of the jog we will then do a group stretch and perhaps you may then enjoy a nice coffee in the Lodge Cafe!? In general the whole session takes about an hour and a quarter, don't worry - you won't be jogging all that time.
