TOO FAT TO RUN?
Do you struggle to think of yourself as a ‘proper runner’?
Do you want to run, but want to lose weight first?
Do you think 'I’d love to sign up for that race… but
maybe when I’m thinner?'
It is time for us ‘fat girls’ to stand together and be counted in the mainstream running world. Put your trainers on and join Barking and Dagenham’s FREE new running club just for women.
Too Fat to Run? is a unique, established running fitness programme run by plus-size marathon runner and award-winning blogger, Julie Creffield, which to date has helped thousands of inactive women survive and thrive in the sport of running, helping them fall in love with sport, grow in confidence and improve their health.
Too Fat to Run? is about changing attitudes to running, breaking down some of the stereotypes and misconceptions about the sport. The project is aimed at women 30+ who self-identify as being inactive or overweight. The project never focuses on distance or speed and instead focuses on community and friendship, celebrating progress however it comes. The programme is supported by a very successful online coaching and thriving virtual community.
