AN inspiring running course kicks off in West Somerset next week.

During the five-week course at West Somerset Sports & Leisure Centre in Minehead, novice runners will be guided through the dos and don’ts of running with specialist advice.

The distance and pace will be ideal for novice runners, and will help those taking part to gradually build up their fitness and pace to take on longer distances and routes.

The course will aid weight loss and toning, and improve stamina and heart health.

Those interested can go along to the course, starting on Tuesday, February 25, at 9.15am for an hour, costing £3.50 per session.

Runners should meet at Minehead Middle School on the Ponsford Road side by the traffic crossing.
