Get up to Five Testimonials
'Most of my friends are runners and I've always felt a bit like a lazy outsider that couldn't even run 10 metres. I ran 6km in my session today and would never have thought I could get myself to do this. The group and programme have helped me achieve this and I feel very proud of myself.'Read More
'I ran previously 30+ years ago. For the last 4-5years I have wanted to run in an event, every time I started to push myself too soon and ended up sore and rapidly gave up. Extra Mile Runners has a controlled building programme were you do strengthening as well as building up slowly. It was achievable but also very rewarding, the team is incredibly encouraging. Thank you.'Read More
'I am so happy that I found a group that is supportive and so much fun. I love this programme, it is well paced and achievable for anyone. I have learnt that if I believe it, I can do it. I was worried that I would be too old and would get injured, but the programme is well designed to build up your strength gradually.'Read More

The strength exercises have been a big bonus that has improved my enjoyment of running.
Extra Mile Runners provide a great environment for gaining skills with the added fun of meeting lots of nice people - thank you!'Read More
An incredible programme that is deceptively simple but gets you up to 5km in 8 weeks - Wow!Read More
'I’m not a runner, never believed in running unless you are being chased and even then everything is negotiable! I signed up not believing I would really “get up to 5km” and this Saturday I will! The programme is awesome no matter how slow you are, everyone starts and finishes at the same time.
7 weeks ago I didn’t think I could run for 30secs and last night I ran for 25mins straight. Follow the programme, listen to the coaches and getting there is achievable. 'Read More
'I really enjoyed the programme and found everyone very encouraging. As the programme progressed and we were running more and walking less it was a great feeling to realise I could actually run 5kms.
It was flattering to have the new Fivers telling me they admire what I am doing - that had never happened to me before.'Read More
'Almost a pensioner I had grave doubts as to whether I could do this programme But after the first week all those doubts disappeared and I was jogging! My family couldn’t believe that I was doing this, I couldn’t believe I was doing it! If I can run 5km, anyone can…just do it!'Read More
'The concept is great, the coaches are awesome but the big thing for me is having a system for achievement. In 8 weeks I have achieved something that I never thought was possible for me: to run. Lord knows I have tried (hard) and failed before! I have also been looking for work and that is hard but being able to achieve something worthwhile in another part of my life has been HUGE! It has kept me positive, structured and has done wonders for my confidence. Thanks guys, you make all the difference!'Read More
'I am not a runner, I don’t like running but the programme has made me appreciate it more and has made me succeed in my goal. I find I am liking how I feel after each session and meeting with the group 3 days a week is great - you see how everyone is progressing towards the same goal I am may find myself saying “I like running” one day.'Read More
'Awesome. Stick to the programme and you will be amazed at what you can do - I know I was!'Read More
'You just have to get out the door and go to the session!! It doesn’t matter how bad your day has been or how crappy you feel, I can guarantee you will have a smile on your face just walking towards your new friends in the group and the amazing coaches. Once you have done your session for the day you will be invincible!!'Read More
'I was interested in the programme but really resisted the early Saturday morning starts, however I have found what a great start to he weekend they can be! I have so enjoyed the company of the other runners in the groups (yes I had breath to chat!) as well as the company along the way of such positive, helpful and entertaining coaches. Great weather, scenery and company as well as achieving a great goal t the end has made for a highly recommended programme - thank you!.'Read More
