The 5K e-course for total beginners

Hit the ground running, on Monday 2 June

Running: it’s not just for sporty ladies with six-pack abs & bouncing ponytails. It’s for manically busy moms. It’s for intellectual bookworms. It’s for curvy girls, skinny-minnies, and everything in between. It’s a mindfulness practice. A declaration of courage, self-care & commitment.

Join our 5K e-course for beginners, and discover the transformative power of running. We’ll bring the wisdom, the how-to’s and the guidance.

You just show up — and run.

What you’ll receive:

  • A Warm-Up Week to set your intentions, clear out self-critical beliefs, and prime your mind for that finish line — before the workouts begin.
  • Eight weeks of practical, step-by-step PDF training plans created by expert running coach Julia Jones. Just download. And dive in.
  • Personal support in our members-only forum — post a question, and we’ll answer it within 24 hours on weekdays & 48 hours on weekends... every time.
  • The Up & Running Gear Guide for total beginners, packed with essential information on running shoes and gear.
  • Access to a private Up & Running blog packed with high-inspiration videos, self-discovery activities, stories & interviews with women who run (and seriously rock).
  • All for just £39 for a total of 9 weeks. That's about 61p per day - much less than a bar of chocolate! For other currencies, check xe.com for latest exchange rates

Who’s running this thing?

That would be us! Up & Running was created by expert Running Coach Julia Jones and inspirational author & Community Director Shauna Reid. We’ve got a beautiful blend of athletic prowess & community-building superpowers. Just ask our happy, healthy, highly-excitable e-course participants.

Our absolute promise.

  • We will get you Up & Running — safely. You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete or even a once-a-week jogger to join the 5K e-course. We’ve designed it with total beginners in mind. And we’ll show you how to take care of your muscles — and your mind — as you start your training adventure.
  • We are your mentors, your cheerleaders, and your biggest fans. If we could show up at every single one of our e-course participant’s 5K finish lines, we would — with frosty Gatorade, a bouquet of roses, and a gigantic bear hug.
  • We know what we’re doing — and it shows. We’ve got testimonials galore. And we treasure each one.
  • You will transform. No ifs, ands, or ever-shrinking butts about it. If you commit to the 5K training with even 50% of your heart, you will transform. Your body will change. You’ll discover new muscles you never knew existed. You’ll find inner reserves of commitment & power.

That finish line? Consider it crossed.

If you can comfortably walk one kilometre in around 12 minutes then you’re ready for our 5K e-course. If you're not quite there yet, our Up & Moving course is perfect for you.
