The 2022 Farnham Runners Get Me Started course for beginners was another great success.

Five members of the original 13 were able to attend the last session and all were able to run for at least 30 minutes without stopping.

The following week, seven members of the group completed a 5k course set up for them at the club championships – Candy Waller (27.27), Natalie Hoare (27.27), Amy Sorrell (28.34), Hannah Green (28.45), Eleanor Thomas (29.33), Clair Arnott (29.45) and Lauren Birch (31.14).

Bjorn Sternberg started the beginners’ course but soon joined the regular club members for their Wednesday night runs and he completed the 10k course in 50.09.

Some of the comments from members of the group – many of whom are joining in with club runs on Wednesday evenings and are continuing to support each other as they progress – include:

“Thank you for all the support and it has been lovely to have been in a group and run with others – this is my new venture to get super fit and have fun”;

“Thanks everyone – it’s been a great few weeks and really hope to keep going”;

“Thanks for taking such good care of us!”

Thank you to everyone involved in making this course a success, especially coaches Craig Tate-Grimes and Julia Tagg and run leaders Lindsay Bamford and Jacquie Browne.

The next course will begin in the spring 2023.
