The new group will meet at Maritime Avenue at Hartlepool marina.

It is a tailored programme with group support to help members gradually build up their fitness and stamina and go from walking to be able to jog or run 5k by the end.

To book your place, email [email protected] or contact leaders at Run Fit Health and Fitness on Facebook.

The Couch to 5k programme is backed by the NHS and is aimed at everyone looking to get fitter and healthier.

It can also relieve stress and combat depression.
