The Beginners meet every Thursday evening at 6.30pm at Stone Tennis Club on Newcastle Road. (arrive 6.15pm)

Our aim is to provide opportunities for anyone, male or female, young or old, who wish to start running:

  • as a hobby
  • to improve fitness
  • to lose weight
  • to build your confidence
  • Have you fancied that Race For Life 5K but don’t know where to start?
  • Want to meet like-minded people or need the encouragement of a club to help you achieve your goals?

Stone Master Marathoners can help and we have a thriving Beginner section, many members joining and further extending their running goals. You don’t need to have any prior running experience.

The sessions are supported by fully trained coaches with the help of club runners. This enables each new starter to run, walk and run, or walk, at their own pace. Our club ethos is to muster back so no-one ever gets left behind – we have years of experience in supporting new runners so you’ll find the atmosphere is hugely welcoming and encouraging. You’ll be proud to be running further than you ever imagined!

No matter what your requirements are, we will support you in setting your own goals and working with you to reach them as we see many of our new starters completing wonderful races such as the St. Michael’s 10K or Race For Life’s.

Come and join us!

There is a cost of £10 payable for the 10 week course which is deducted from your Stone Master Marathoners club membership should you decide to join our great club.

To find out more join us on a Thursday run at 6:30pm from our club house – The Stone Tennis Club. We offer rolling starts to the Beginner Sessions so feel free to join us whenever suits!
