Beginners Info
New to Running - then why not give our Monday Night Sessions a try

We are a friendly running club based in Aylesbury. Our clubhouse is at Rivets Sports & Social Club not far from the town centre. We are a growing club with almost 300 members and are always pleased to welcome new members. Running groups meet most nights of the week and on Sundays but Monday Nights are dedicated to beginners and improvers. We pride ourselves on being open and welcoming to new members of all ages and abilities - from those that have never run before to experienced marathon runners. We run because we love running, want to stay fit and enjoy running with others.

A running club is a good place to learn and be motivated about running. Several members, who had never really run before joining the club have gone on to run marathons, which they said they'd never dreamed of doing but were inspired by the enthusiasm and encouragement of new friends in the club.

Monday night training starts at 7 p.m. at Rivets and is led by Kelvin and Lisa and their team of Run Leaders and is designed for those new to running or those who haven't run for a while and want to get back into it. 

Starting Out
Your footwear is by far the most important thing to think about for running. To start running any distance; you need a comfortable, well-fitting, not-too-old pair of trainers. And if you enjoy running and want to continue; you need to think about buying a new pair of good quality running footwear.
For some, the first question to ask is - What shall I wear? Well, the clothes are not too important when you are starting out. You don't need the latest branded Lycra, you just need comfortable clothing, such as t-shirt and joggers. You will get hot, so easy-to-peel and tie around your waist tops are good. And for safety a reflective top is a good idea, but not essential to start off.
