Too Fat To Run
The Too Fat To Run project has now come to the end of it’s phase. We hope that it will be up and running again soon.
Here’s a documentary which charts the achievements of the women that took part in the first phase.
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 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.
