Witton Park – Couch to Marathon 10km Run

It was an icy start for our couch to marathon runners this morning as they listed to a briefing on marathon training kit and running injury free! They then set out on a 10km run which took in 3 laps of the beautiful Witton Park in Blackburn.

The morning went really well with the majority successfully completing the challenge, whilst one very strong and consistent runner suffered from an IT band injury so very wisely withdrew to rest it and seek treatment.

There’s a long hard winter ahead for our Couch to Marathon members and we’re sure you will all support them in any way you can and congratulate them for accepting the challenge. Many were previously completely inactive and have already made life changing progress.

We’re very proud of everybody at Be Strong.
