Final Run Newsletter

Your final run is here

8 weeks ago we started this journey together. For some of you this is your first time, for others it's about improving on your last 5km and have gained more experience but for all of you, it is about putting into practice the lessons you have learnt over the last 8 weeks and achieving your own goal to the best of your ability. 

This has been a journey that has developed friendships, created belief in your ability and has hopefully given you a taste of the buzz of running. 

We hope you are proud of what you have achieved yourselves, but we have to say, our team is incredibly proud of you all. 


Bring it on.
