Success for new runners

A jogging group for adults new to running in Corby has helped more than 30 people complete their first five kilometre race.

The group was launched in January with qualified leaders, Tracey Shepherd and Corrine Wilson.

On Sunday, April 27, group members took part in the Northamptonshire 5km Run Series at Corby and on Monday they will be taking part in the next race at Weekley Wood, starting from The Harvester, Kettering at 7.30pm.

The jogging group is part of Northamptonshire Sport’s Jog Northants programme which aims to encourage people to become more active and fitter by running on a regular basis with people of similar fitness levels. The sessions are free of charge.

Tracey Shepherd, a volunteer group leader, said: “There were some very good performances from our group.”
