Meet n’ Train

We all know the benefits of a healthy lifestyle! One of the most natural and effective ways to achieve this is through walking and running.

Meet n’ Train is an opportunity for everyone to get in the evening, do some exercise and meet new people. You can start at any age, no previous experience is required and you can choose a pace that is suited to your level of fitness.

The programme is suitable for beginners through to regular runners and the emphasis is on meeting with people of similar abilities on a regular basis.

Features of the programme:

  • Leaders will organise group walks/jogs/runs on a weekly basis
  • An opportunity to exercise with others in a fun and sociable environment
  • Advice on fitness topics and healthy lifestyle tips

How it works

A qualified leader within each group will set out a schedule suitable for your needs. The training nights feature group runs, with each group comprised of people with similar fitness levels. These groups range in ability from complete beginners up to regular runners and they each train at an appropriate level.
