Active Devon supports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!
Couch to 5k beginner running group - you can too!
Active Devon is based in Devon and have created a Couch to 5k beginner running group. Active Devon work with community partners to find innovative ways of achieving its vision of Everyone in Devon Active for Life. Their video features a group of women from Bowhill Primary School in Exeter who all successfully completed the 9 week Couch to 5k beginner runner programme. The community running group was created by Active Devon and Exeter City Football in the Community as a result of consultation with the school to try and catch the imaginations of some of the inactive parents. The women give us their funny and candid stories of why they joined and what they have gained through completing the programme.
