“I approached that first beginner session very slowly, with Anne as back marker being very supportive and kind. The various runner who mustered back multiple times were all smiling and giving encouragement (they could actually run and speak – I was in awe!)
I left feeling amazing with what i had achieved!”
Stone Master Marathoners wants to support your running dreams!
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, we cater for total beginners. The sessions are supported by fully trained coaches with the help of fantastic run leaders. 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!
