Running provides people with the opportunity to improve their health and fitness while at the same time getting out of their homes and into the fresh air, enjoying everything their local area has to offer:
Our Deal Group (which covers, Deal, Walmer and Sandwich) meets on a Monday and Wednesday evening, catering for those able to run for 4 miles or more. We then run Beginner, Returner and Improver 's courses at various times throughout the year to cater for those that aren't quite ready to slot in with our existing groups. We provide a monthly programme which gives you all the venue details for each session.
Monday Night: Fitness Running Sessions meeting at 6.30pm (suitable for Improvers and Intermediate levels)
Wednesday Night: Meeting at 6:30pm
Next Complete Beginner's course is starting in February 2019.
Hear from our Deal Group Leader:-
Running in a group is a great way to meet new friends, get fit, and most importantly, HAVE FUN! I never ran at school and although I tried to run many times as an adult, I never seemed to get more than 50 metres before having to give up – so I thought it just wasn’t for me. About years ago I was shown the right technique and could just about manage two miles on my own when I joined Sarah and her running group in Canterbury. At first I was at the back and had to walk all the hills – but nobody minded and I was really encouraged to keep on going. Today I have the medals for the London marathon and quite a few half marathons hanging up in the kitchen. I now run one of the Deal groups – so I can really empathise with those who join our beginners’ groups as complete novices.
"I love the 'newly found' sense of energy and fitness that Jelly Legs has given to me. I never thought that at 50 I would run a half marathon! Jelly Legs builds you up to becoming a runner at a pace that is right for you. I also love the social-aspect to the group. It is great chatting to different members from varying backgrounds."
"I started running for the first time in my life when probably others of my age were stopping! I so enjoy being a member of Jelly Legs and find the support and advice invaluable. Everyone is so friendly and encouraging to each other and there is a real bond between members. This is always encouraged by the leaders who make everyone feel valued. I would recommend the group to anyone."
"I just wanted to say a big thank you. Since joining the Deal group 4 months ago, I recently completed my first 5k race. At the age of 40 this was my first race ever! I have lost more than a stone in weight. I feel healthier than I have in years. My family have also taken up a healthier lifestyle and we are all benefitting from its effects. I really would not have been able to do it alone, so a big thank you to you all, especially all my new running friends. The communication is first class and the wealth of knowledge is fab!"
