Hambleton Athletics and Running Club Complete Another Couch to 5K Programme

HARC’s latest Couch to 5k cohort graduated on Saturday 12th June, becoming fully-fledged runners. After ten weeks of hard work, the group completed their grand finale run at Cod Beck Reservoir in glorious morning sunshine with lots of support from fellow HARC members. They were then presented with certificates and medals to celebrate their amazing achievement. We would like to say a huge well done to them as we welcome them to our regular club sessions and help them as they continue their running journeys. Well done, Team HARC! Please contact us with membership enquiries or for further details of our beginner, intermediate and 1:1 coached programmes. ...

What a year for HARC!

What a year for HARC!

2020 brought the formation of our wonderful club, which has swelled to 70 members in its first six months. This has led to lots of fun and laughter with friends old and new. We have managed to keep on running throughout these strange times, in groups or with “buddies” around Bedale, and through our pioneering virtual running option, which has been a huge success. We are proud to have welcomed 24 new athletes to the world of running via two Couch to 5k programmes, with a further eight due to graduate in January. Plans to develop a hub in Stokesley have progressed as we begin interval sessions and a Couch to 5k programme there. Although many events have been cancelled, our determined club members have tackled several Lakeland Trails courses, a couple of Gin Runs, the Falls and Castle, and the Three Peaks Challenge, not to mention a first marathon achievement. We even squeezed in a few “away runs” – Cod Beck,...

Stokesley – new year, new hub!

Stokesley – new year, new hub!

We are very excited to announce a Couch to 5k programme and speed intervals in Stokesley, the first steps in establishing our Stokesley hub. This will mirror our Bedale hub and ultimately provide the same range of activities as we do from the established Bedale venues. The new Couch to 5k programme is starting on Tuesday January 19th. This is suitable for complete beginners or those returning from injury, and will be run both in-person (meeting outside our good friends Let's Run in College Square) and virtually (using our pioneering Zoom-based system). We have found that running these sessions virtually not only allows us to carry on even if the strictest lockdown restrictions are imposed, but also allows you to join in from a little further afield or if you prefer to start out on your own rather than in a group. This C25K programme will be led by Caroline Horton, who we are delighted to welcome to the club. Caroline is...
