We asked the beginners who started in September 2017 and graduated November 2017 for some feedback and thought you might want to read just some of it

I am so pleased that I found a group to run with that are always so friendly and supportive

A wonderful group of people


Excellently run club


I was so happy and pleased with every aspect of the course. I couldn’t give Carol enough

praise for all the help and support she has given myself and everyone else. She gave her all at

every point and so we gave our all. She is brilliant! THANK YOU


I think the whole course isn’t excellent and everyone involved was so encouraging


I don’t think you could improve on the help, advice, enthusiasm and also dedication the course leaders and their helpers give to encourage us over the 9 week course. On week 1, none of us think we will ever be able to run 5k in a couple of months’ time, but it is a tried and tested programme which works. Many thanks to everyone!


Not really, such a good experience, lots of support and encouragement. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am so grateful to have had the opportunity to join in.


Totally brilliant. I love that RR is caring and inclusive. Annette was fantastic. Always cheerful and

encouraging. People who drop out tend not to realise they have to put in the work doing the

homework and it’s really achievable to go from 0 to 5k


I have thoroughly enjoyed my course. Great leadership and encouragement along the way. Being able to attend other groups during the week to complete homework is also a good idea. Thank you


Prefect I can’t see what you could change. Maybe not charge to large amount of £5 joining fee, I

am joking! I’ve pass on recommendation to all my Facebook friends to get on the next course.

Thank you.


Nothing to improve; it’s been a wonderful experience. Thanks a lot


None! Fabulous club, I’m very happy to be a part of it.


The course was great – thanks to Carol who was fantastic. I missed the first two weeks as I was on a waiting list but have attended every session after. The variety of the runs has been fantastic.


Really appreciate the friendship and getting me back in to running after 25+ years. Thoroughly enjoyed it and intend to run with the advanced groups going forward


Steph was wonderfully encouraging, thoroughly enjoyed the course. Anne’s homework group was also fabulous, lovely to have a continuation from the Monday session. Thank you.


You’re already doing such an amazing job! Everyone is so friendly and helpful! I’m so happy to be a part of the Redway Runners family !! X


Great course, amazing results in only 9 weeks. Loved it


I thought it was good. Even my girlfriend and mum had great support on their course they were


No. Steve was absolutely exceptional and the course completely exceeded my expectations.


No, I thought that the whole experience was wonderful, Annette was perfect and the helpers were all so fantastic


I think the club is very inclusive, friendly and welcoming. The time the run leaders and helpers volunteer is fantastic and shows their enthusiasm for running. Really enjoyed my beginners group with Steve B – apart from having to run


I can’t think of anything that would make it better! I can’t thank everyone enough for a fantastic introduction to running. Everyone is so friendly and supportive – I couldn’t have done it without you so a big thank you from me!


Fantastic running group, so friendly and helpful, amazing volunteers every week giving their

time up


The beginners course was extremely well organised and a fantastic experience. Everybody was so friendly and supportive and it was so inclusive. The fact it is free of charge is extraordinary in this day and age. I loved every single minute of it and can’t thank Carol and all the helpers enough. I have recommended the course to several others.


This isn’t a suggestion, but I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to

Redway Runners and Sophie in particular, for giving up her own time so generously to support us beginner runners. I’m slow and unfit, but I feel like a runner – this is down to the encouragement and positivity of the club. Thank you!


An amazing experience – thank you


Excellent experience in every aspect. So grateful to Natalie (and all the helpers) for all their support and encouragement. I now have a new hobby!


I’ve loved it and can’t think how anything can be improved. Well done!


it’s been an amazing experience and I’m excited to be getting fit again, thanks to you guys!!!


I’ve loved it x


No suggestions but just wanted to say thank you for all the support and encouragement throughout the course and today at graduation.


Keep doing what you are doing, it works
