Couch to 5K

Our next Couch to 5k will be starting on 9th January 2023

We will confirm nearer the time how you can register your interest.

Here’s what our graduates of the C25K think:

“Running” This was something that other people did. Now with the support of MDRC I completed the C25K and now run (yes run) with the club twice a week. It is the most supportive group I have ever joined. All I can say is if I can run anyone can. Lorraine Maxine

One Sunday morning upon reading a Facebook ad for MDRC I decided to sign up for the Couch to 5k programme. At 59 years old I knew I wouldn’t finish the programme. Four months later I am running 5k twice a week and loving it! MDRC are so supportive, and the people are lovely. Great bunch! Stephen Roche

The running club helped me run and complete couch to 5k! It’s the best support network and now I run on a regular basis. Best bunch of folk!! Poppy Gallagher

Before I started couch to 5k I couldn’t run any more than a minute or so. I’m now running 2 or 3 times a week and see a 5k as a short run. In January I clocked up 46 miles in total and ran 10k in one session. I couldn’t have achieved this without the support of MDRC. They are so friendly and supportive no matter your ability.
