New night for beginners

ARBROATH Footers Running Club is introducing an extra training night on Wednesdays, specifically for newcomers.

They would like to welcome complete beginners or people who have only done a little running. For beginners they will start with a walk/run training plan and the target will be to complete a five kilometre park run within 10 to 12 weeks. Running is a great way to get fit and lose weight.

The group will meet at the Saltire Leisure Centre on Wednesdays at 6.30 p.m.
