Want to improve your fitness, make new friends and reduce stress?

Then why not join Godalming’s new couch to 5k running group, Waverley Wanderers.

Every Saturday from 7 October to 2 December, 9-10am, the group will meet outside the Godalming Leisure Centre and go for a run. No previous experience is needed and by the end of the nine week course you should run 5k.

Councillor Jenny Else, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing and Culture, said: “Couch to 5k is great way to get moving. It’s specifically aimed at people who don’t currently do much by way of exercise.

"Getting outside and getting active is great for mental wellbeing. Apart from reducing stress and improving health, it can help people generally feel and sleep better and increase self esteem. Being part of a group means that you get to make new friends, or why not come with some?”

The nine week course is for anyone over 16 years and costs £25.
