Ely Runners


We are pleased to announce, starting in 2018, that Ely Runners will hold their ‘Run England’ 10 week beginners courses ending in a 5k Cambridge parkrun at Milton Country Park on three preset dates:

Spring: 12th March

Summer: 18th June

Autumn: 17th September

  • When: Mondays (7:00pm - 8:00pm) over 10 weeks.
  • Where: Paradise Centre, Ely
  • Cost: The 10-week course will cost £20 - Refunded to you if you join our club!
  • Restrictions: 16+ only (U16 can try running with the club's junior section, contact Conan, Mark or Alan - juniors@elyrunners.co.uk)

The course is aimed to help new runners take up the sport or lapsed runners return to the sport.

Our aim is to help people become involved in running to improve fitness and health in a friendly and social environment. Running is not just for the elite and the beginner course is designed to bring those completely new or returning to running from a breathless fast walk to a comfortable jogging pace.

All of our sessions will be held by qualified UKA (United Kingdom Athletics) trained coaches, who are trained to take you through many aspects of running. Our coaches are also very experienced runners in their own right and will be happy to share their knowledge and experiences.

In particular the course is aimed to help beginners:

  1. Improve health & fitness and sense of well-being
  2. Get into better shape
  3. Prepare to take part in races such as 'Race for life' (5k)
  4. Have the opportunity to meet like-minded people at a similar fitness-level
