ATHLETICS: Sign up for free sessions at Harriers

BOURNE Town Harriers are encouraging athletes to try out their free ten-week summer starter course for beginners.

The free course will run every Tuesday night at Bourne Grammar School throughout the summer, with anybody interested advised to just turn up.

The course is a very gentle run, walk, run program and is a great way to get started in running.

Bourne Town Harriers is a friendly club who support all runners from the very new beginner runner to the competing runner.

After such a strong turnout last year, the Harriers are keen to help more local people into running – and with qualified coaches and club members aplenty, this summer is a great time to start.

All beginners are well looked after and gradually moved through the course at a suitable pace.
