Beginner Running Tips, Plans & Guides

Our Running for Beginners section is designed to show you how to start running, offering running tips, beginner training plans & guides.

Running tips for beginners

We will begin with some simple running tips for beginners that look at everything from the clothes you should be wearing, how to choose your footwear, how to warm-up before you run, how to build your endurance and distance and how to make sure you recover properly after running.

We will also provide advice on running safely – making sure you are aware of traffic and other pedestrians and that they are aware of you.

Beginner running plans

For many people, having a running plan is the best way to start as it helps give them structure. We will provide a beginner running plan for distances including 5k, 10k, half marathon and even, for the more ambitious, a beginner plan that will take you all the way to full marathon distance.
