One2Run5k January 2020

Following on from the huge success of the inaugural One2Run5k, we are thrilled to announce that the next course will commence on Tuesday 7th January 2020.

Aimed at introducing both new and existing runners to the world of running and correct technique, we will again be calling on the expertise of John Reynolds of JRSTT (John Reynolds Soft Tissue Therapy).

John is one of the sponsors of Rushmere Community Runners and he will be working in conjunction with RCR’s experienced Run Leaders to take you from non-runner to 5K runner. Additionally, if you are an existing runner then you will clearly benefit from this programme.

This comprehensive and specialised programme will take place over 13 weeks and will look at all aspects of running including the importance of: warm-ups, cool downs and stretches as well as form, technique and breathing.

“One2Run5k is a 13-week run programme that develops and builds a runner’s understanding of the elements that are fundamental to both enjoying and understanding how to run efficiently.” Said John Reynolds, “This new course wraps essential topics such posture, balance, biomechanics and form, breathing, stretching, self-myofascial release, core stability and, strength and conditioning around the actual running element of the course. Runners will develop their running capabilities over the 13 weeks to see them able to run for up to an hour by the end of the programme.”

If you have ever wanted to try running but were not sure where to start or are returning to running following time out, then this course is for you. With knowledge, support, encouragement and a drive for you to succeed, our unique team aim to give you everything you need to start and progress on your new running journey.

If you are in any doubt as to the value of this course, read the feedback from the graduates of the first course, 60% of whom have remained at RCR –

“I thought the course was amazing it taught me how to run, run drills, how to breathe, warm-up, cool down etc. It really has been valuable, and every week was very engaging and interesting!”

“For the sessions I attended I found them to be very informative regarding aspects of running that I had not even thought about. I enjoyed learning about warming ups and warming down, stretching etc.”

“I really enjoyed the course and was able to benefit from learning a better technique and think about how/what I was doing.”

“The course was very comprehensive covering all aspects of running. I found the guidance on form very useful.”

“I enjoyed the structure, content and method of delivery. The positive support for all levels of attendees was excellent.”

“I thought the course was very informative. And it was great to be encouraged so much along the way regardless of your running abilities.”

“Well supported course. Learning to run to help prevent injuries. Great people and support but all on own journeys with no pressure.”

“I thought the course was well balanced from week to week making the whole course very achievable for any ability. I liked the fact that the whole course wasn’t just about running a certain distance or for a certain length of time, it was warming up and cooling down, strength work, techniques, balance and probably more important for some making bonds and friendships and having leaders who support and encourage you so you can reach your full potential.”

“Great course and the support both from the other runners and the coaches has been really motivating. Learning how to breathe properly when running after struggling for so long was a highlight/revelation for me!”

“Great coaching and loved the different sessions and warm-ups so it didn’t feel monotonous.”

“The course was excellent & I liked the technical side.”

“Really enjoyed the course – favourites learning new techniques and being able to practice them -and being part of a friendly group.”

“The course was excellent far better than I imagined it could be. Favourite bits learning new techniques and tips each week. Also being part of a group.”

“It has been excellent. I have completed c25k on my own before and struggled with breathing, and focus. Best bit is i know I can carry it on. I have met a couple of other ladies in exactly the same state/pace and have met them throughout to complete the homework.”

This second ‘One2Run5k’ course is only available through Rushmere Community Runners and will be based at Ipswich School Sports Centre.

As stated, the course will start on Tuesday 7th January 2020 and costs just £35. Places are available to book now via ‘runtogether’ via the following link –
