Running success

It was pleasing to seeing the article about Run England’s activities in your paper on October 31.

As mentioned by Marion Hemsworth there is an active campaign to provide increased opportunities to run for both beginners and seasoned runners.

Lancing Eagles Running Club is taking part in this campaign having formed a subsidiary Lancing Eagles Group or LEG in April.

LEG is affiliated to Run England. We have a thriving beginners group in addition to our usual running club. Our beginners group caters for beginners with no previous running experience with the aim for them to be able to comfortably compete in a five kilometre (three mile) fun run within ten weeks known as Couch to 5k. This is a great way to get fit, lose weight and run with a group of friendly supportive people.

The majority of people can run a reasonable distance with a little practice. As the television presenter Alice Roberts says, we have evolved to run. It was how we hunted and caught our prey.

Get in touch with Lancing Eagles and LEG for a great welcome.
