Susan Harrison, founder of Running Mate, said: “I hadn’t exercised since school and realised there were lots of people in the same boat.

“Our groups are very friendly, we encourage people to slowly build-up the length of time they are running and it’s about the group working together to encourage each other.”

The Running Mate January Beginners Group sets off every Monday and Thursday at 6:30pm from The Forum in Moat Lane and starts on Monday, 7 January 2019.

Sessions cost £2. For more information email, call 07988 799182 or search for the Running Mate Northants Facebook group.

The beginners group is part of Northamptonshire Sport’s Jog Northants programme which has seen more than 5,000 people sign—up to running groups since 2011.
