It does what it says on the tin – we’ll help you go from 0 to 5k in 10 weeks thanks to our volunteer run leaders. Pictured above are the 25 beginners who signed up for our first Nuttall Park running programme, and you could be next!

Maria Cranston, Active Travel Officer for IWIYW, said: “We’ve designed the 0-5k running programme in a staggered way so people can prepare themselves for taking on the ten weeks at a time and location that suits them.
“It’s a great foundation to start training for the Bury 10k in September, alongside likeminded people who range from complete beginners to runners looking to improve. We were thrilled with the turnout at the first running group at Nuttall Park and hope that once word gets around, we’ll see similar attendances at the others.”
