Do you struggle to think of yourself as a ‘proper runner’? Do you want to start running, but feel that you need to lose weight first? Do you think 'I’d love to sign up for that race … 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.
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 fallin 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 projectis 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.
Many women on previous Too Fat to Run? courses have started as completely inactive, struggle to be consistent with sport, have health issues, suffer with anxiety/depression or self esteem issues.
