A new running group is starting in Lichfield.

Aimed at beginners, the Friary Grange Leisure Centre group will take place on Mondays from 6.30pm to 7pm, starting on March 11.

Phil Smith, who will lead the five planned runs, said: “Running is a fantastic way to keep fit and is such an enjoyable pastime.

“This group is perfect for people who are thinking about taking up running, but want to do it in a sensible and measured way as part of a group.

“The weekly run will get you started, improve your fitness and help to build up your confidence.”

It costs £1.50 members and £2 non members per session or, if playing for all five sessions, it costs £5 for members and £7.50 non members. To book, call Friary Grange Leisure Centre on 01543 308842.
