The 5K e-course for total beginners
Hit the ground running, on Monday 8 September
: 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 for YOU.
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
Up & Running sh*ts all over Couch to 5K! Shauna and Julia should be knighted (damed?) for getting me running.
I'm so grateful to you both for creating this incredible program. I feel fitter, happier and more motivated than I have in years. I call myself a runner now and have so many running dreams and aspirations to pursue. What’s even better is that I know that with Up & Running I can achieve them… where have you been all my life?
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. Click here to view a sample plan.
- 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
What Julia and Shauna do goes way beyond my expectations for an online class. I came here expecting training plans and a little more, but what I have received is a golden ticket for the Wonka factory.
Up & Running really has been the best thing I have done for myself in years, and not just for the running. My confidence and happiness in my own skin has increased so much and I love what my body can DO, rather than obsessing about what it looks like.
I was pretty confident I’d finish the 5K Course, but I really didn’t expect to love it so much that I’d keep running
. And I definitely didn’t expect to love the forums so much – so many amazing women: supportive, funny and all just trying their best.
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).
