0-5k Course – Autumn 2021

Are you wondering how to get started running? Have you started running and have no idea how to improve? Then the Maidstone Harriers 0-5k Course is for you!

Starting on 13 October 2021 and running over 10 weeks and 9 sessions our Leaders in Running Fitness as well as experienced runners from our club will help you build up to running a non-stop 5k around Maidstone.

We begin each week meeting at the Maidstone Hockey Club along with the rest of the Maidstone Harriers before we set off on our session. Afterwards you are welcome to join the rest of the club at the Hockey Club bar afterwards.

The course is free of charge, with no obligation to join the club afterwards.
