Ever wanted to run a parkrun but didn't know where to start?  Been running before but got out of the habit? Join our free Couch to 5k course and unlock your true potential!  The course will be led by our qualified Club Coaches and Run Leaders, many of whom started running this way.

From our base at Wilmslow Phoenix Sports Club, we'll take you on a journey that will culminate in running Wilmslow parkrun on Saturday 12th March.

You'll learn the basics of good running and gradually increase your distance over ten weeks, as you discover new routes around our lovely Cheshire countryside. And we'll be with you all the way!

Styal RC is committed to being an inclusive club and welcomes participation from under-represented groups. Unfortunately we can’t accept under 18’s.

Numbers will be limited - email styalrc@gmail.com  to register interest now.


“Having never seriously considering running, but with a growing waistline, I signed up for a C25K course run by Styal RC volunteers. Their friendly and helpful approach made those first steps much less daunting for a beginner like me. Goals were set based on individual ability; an ethos that has continued at the club since I joined. I carried on running to complete 10K and half marathon races - and my first marathon two years later!”

Stuart Bradshaw, Run Leader

"This is a great course for new and returning runners to complete. Many of our past beginners are now established members of Styal RC with some of them completing half marathons and marathons recently, and others winning age group categories at races. We hope, at the end of the course, to be able to offer further opportunities for participants to develop their running skills and follow in the footsteps of previous graduates.”

Tony Collier, Coahing and Development Officer
