Beginner and Improver Walk to Run groups in Whitby!

Beginner Walk to Run groups: These sessions are led by qualified Run Leaders, who will support and motivate you on your way from walking to running, The beginner group is a gentle introduction to developing running, with a concentration on building confidence and running techniques.

Mondays 6pm – 7pm MEET: at Caedmon College (Normanby Site) Sports Hall, Whitby – TOP car park.

Improver Walk to Run groups: The Improver Walk to Run group is led by qualified Run Leaders, but is a more advanced session as the time spent walking is gradually decreased and the distance covered during the session is increased. This session is suitable for those who have a medium level of fitness and have been running before.

Wednesdays 6.30pm – 7.30pm MEET: at Eastside Community Centre, Whitby.


Running is a low cost way of reaching your daily 30 minutes of physical activity and there are welcoming running clubs in the area for those who want to continue in the sport. The sessions can also help you meet a personal goal i.e. taking part in the Cancer Research UK Race for Life.

Running is a great aerobic activity which can help weight loss and develop general well being. This session forms part of the England Athletics Run Together programme and all the Activators have achieved the Leadership in Running and Fitness qualification in order to deliver the sessions.
