THE couch-to-5k running course is back.

Hampshire County Council is subsidising the nine-week course to help improve the fitness of people across Havant.

It is ideal for people who have no previous running experience.

The emphasis is on fun and socialising but, by the end of it, participants should be able to run three miles.

The course is for over-18s and costs £15.

Councillor Yvonne Weeks, who looks after community at Havant Borough Council, said: ‘We are delighted with the success of this scheme and excited to be delivering more courses in 2015 with the hope of inspiring people to become active.’

The first courses start from Emsworth Park on January 6 and Horndean Technology College on Tuesday, January 
7.
