A group of first-time runners have successfully completed a 5k course in Sunny Hunny.

Running club Lynnsport Ladybirds, in conjunction with West Norfolk council’s Hunstanton Heritage Gardens project and Alive Leisure, led a group of women through their latest beginners running course at Hunstanton.

The six-week course is for women who have never run before or for those wishing to return to running after a break, with an aim to complete a 5k route on the final week.

Coach Bridget Plowright, who led the course, said: “It is very satisfying to see the women on the first night, rather nervous and unsure, develop their confidence, skills and fitness to be able to complete a 5k route on the sixth week.

“Not only have these women started running but have also made new friends.”
