Run your first 2k

New to the treadmill? Does the thought of running frighten you? Not sure how to use the treadmill for anything other than warming up or cooling down? You are not alone!

We’ve developed this easy-to-follow programme which will take you from Treadmill N00b to confident runner in 5 weeks. By the end of the programme, you should be able to get an easy 2K on the clock – from there you’ll only go up. Our goal is to get you comfortably running 2kms by the end of the programme.


What's included:

This programme was designed by Lee-Ann Elliott, a Virgin Active group exercise instructor who teaches Yoga, GRID and Cycle. Lee-Ann was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in her 20s and was told she would never walk properly again, let alone run. In fact, she only started running less than a year ago when she decided she’d like to try her hand at triathlons. Post Iron Man 70.3 she’s here to share her knowledge and guidance with you.

  • 5 week running programme (x2 sessions a week)
