0-5K Supervised Running Programme

Our 0-5K Supervised Running Programme is for anyone who has either not run for a while or has limited previous running experience and wants to be able to run 5K in 8 weeks!

This programme is a supervised run/walk to continuous running programme. Our Running Coach will lead twice weekly group sessions and show you the techniques you need to run up to 5K and beyond, efficiently and pain free.

Each participant will also have access to our eLearning platform where online content will detail the running programme for that week, as well as helpful advice about nutrition, what to wear and motivational input. Even if you miss a supervised session, you will still be able to stay on top of your training plan by following the eLearning content.

Who: Running Instructor and UCD Sports Lecturer, Maeve McKillop has designed your online programme. Running Instructor, Kieran McKeown, will deliver the onsite group sessions. 

When: The programme will begin on April 15th at 12:00 (meet up 1st floor foyer) and will run every Monday and Wednesday until June 10th (8 weeks in total).
