Did you run the Wigan 10k? were you one of the army of new runners in Wigan who conquered the 6.2 miles? If so, you will probably be feeling sore, tired but just a little bit elated with your achievement and rightly so.
You are possibly also thinking about next year already, or maybe even another 10k sometime soon? Can you run just a little bit faster next time? Maybe you would like to go a bit further and take on a bigger challenge in the form of a half marathon? Or maybe you just want to keep up the running habit and all the health benefits you have discovered it brings.
Wigan Harriers can help with all of the above!
Have a look at the Wigan 10k results and you will see we have a huge spread of abilities amongst our members. We are very proud of our fast runners who were racing it out in the top ten, but we are equally proud of the rest of our members spread throughout the field. This means that if you can already run 10k you will certainly fit right in to the training with Harriers and be able to take your running to the next level.
In fact, quite a few of the Harriers vests you saw on Sunday first joined after last years Wigan 10k so you will be in good company!
We offer free sessions organised by fully trained UK Athletics coaches that are tailored to suit all speeds of runner. You can come along and simply enjoy the company and camaraderie of training with like minded running enthusiasts, or throw yourself into a full training plan and see just how much faster or further you can really go. Either way we would love to see you come and join us.
Training times are updated and available on the TrainingTimes page, but the best night for new runners is Thursday when we meet at the DW stadium car park near to Robin Park Arena. Drop us an email to let us know you are coming, or just say hello when you arrive and we can have a one to one chat about what you want to get out of the club and how we can help.
See you soon!
