Staff ‘Couch to 5K’ Running Programmes

It is the New Year and many of us make resolutions to get more active and healthy.

Why not sign up to one of two FREE, ‘Couch to 5k’ programmes for beginners, with the aim to be able to walk or jog 5k after 8 to 10 weeks.

Taking part is a great opportunity to improve your physical health and support your mental wellbeing.

Musgrave Park Hospital Programme (10 weeks)

This programme will start on 15 January, taking place every Monday and Wednesday at 5.30pm. Qualified Jog Belfast coaches in partnership with our Health Improvement Team will deliver the programme outside. Participants meet in front of the Mitre Building.


Virtual Programme (8 weeks)

The second option is a virtual ‘Couch to 5K’ programme starting on week of 15 January. This programme is completed individually, whilst supported by qualified Athletics NI coaches who will email participants weekly training plans and give ongoing tips and support throughout the programme.

Places are limited and pre-booking is essential for both programmes!
