Couch 2 5K Training Gathering Pace

The current group of C25K runners are progressing well within the friendly yet strangely competitive and challenging environment that is Edenderry AC Seniors. Our C25K training commenced one month ago with the aim to bring the complete running novice or those re-starters through the walk – jog – run process.
Our programme is overseen by a fully qualified trainer. The secret to our success with the Edenderry AC Seniors C25K is the support and mentoring of our club members. It is not too late to join us at the secure and well-lit Derry Rovers AFC facility on Monday; Wednesday & Fridays. Leaving aside the odd bit of pain, you will not regret the gains.
