Tullamore Harriers Couch to 5K 2020

The start of 2020 is now here, time to make New Year’s resolutions. Why not put your fitness on the “to do list”? Sign up for the Tullamore Harriers C25K programme and don’t let the opportunity pass you by. Starting on Monday January 6th and each continuing each Monday and Wednesday at 6.30pm for 10 weeks, at a cost of €25 that is only €1 per session so it is excellent value for money. The programme is for all levels of fitness from total beginners to those with some level of fitness. The sessions usually involve 40 to 50 minutes of exercise including warm up and cool down. All sessions are supervised by Tullamore Harriers members and you will be advised and supported every step of the way. It’s not too late to start, come along any Monday or Wednesday evening. See you there!
