New to running? Join Kew’s local Couch to 5K+ group

Community news on behalf of Kew Community Trust | 1 May 2024

The free-to-join Kew Couch to 5K running group is returning for its second year from Monday 13 May 2024 to support another batch of new runners in taking on the popular NHS programme and improving their fitness. 

From 13 May, the free weekly running sessions will happen every Monday from 10 to 11am starting at Kew Plaza at the end of North Road by Kew Gardens Station outside Torelli il Piccolo.

Residents of all ages are welcome to come along. The Couch to 5K programme will follow the NHS app programme, which aims to help people get off the couch and achieve their goals of getting fitter at a reasonable pace, which helps to relieve stress and boost overall wellbeing. Kew’s Couch to 5K running group takes this a step further by making running a bit more fun and social!

To find out more about the Kew Couch to 5K group or get involved, contact the organisers at or call 020 8876 3545.

The Kew Couch to 5K running group is supported by the Active Richmond Fund.
