Beginners’ Walk to Run 5k

The Dolly Mixtures usually run their beginners’ courses in January and/or September.  Unfortunately due to the current situation we do not have a date for the next beginners’ course at this time.  As soon as we are able to offer another course we will advertise it on this page and on our Facebook page.

All courses run on the same format – a 10 week course culminating in a 5k challenge.

 During the course our experienced leaders will take you from complete beginner to achieving a 5k event with a walk-run plan which allows everyone to progress steadily and easily.  You will start with gentle jogging and build up to running 5k gradually.  We finish each course with a 5k challenge in which all beginners are invited to run the course at their own pace with the support of fellow beginners and Dolly leaders. In true Dollies style the challenge is completed with tea and cake – an opportunity to meet beginners from the other groups and talk about coming back to our regular Dollies sessions which are open to all runners.

Places are restricted to 30 ladies per venue.  To book your place email Kim –

The cost is £30 for the full course and the fee is payable on booking.
