Due to the massive success of the national Couch to 5K concept, Chorley Council continued this event into 2016 with a 9-week programme that started in January 2016. The training sessions were hosted by volunteers and were held three times a week, culminating in a 5K Run to celebrate the completion of the programme. Over 200 people registered and approximately 120 participants completed the end of programme run in March. SB Sports Massage has supported this programme throughout with injury clinics, discounted treatments for participants and massage support on the day of the run. It was amazing to see so many people who had never run before complete a 5K run, no matter what speed they walked or ran and regardless of how long it took them to cross the finish line. Well done to all involved!!
