The story so far:
PGRunners began in January 2019 as a weekly Couch to 5k running group. After just nine weeks, a small group of PGRunners completed their first ever Parkrun at Colney Lane in April 2019! Now it's the academic year 2019/20 and PGRunners is still going strong! It's the perfect time to join!
PGRunners has been set up in conjunction with the Courage Project - an initiative working to improve PGR mental health and wellbeing at the University of East Anglia. We hope this group will act as a good opportunity to chat to other researchers about life, your research, and exercise, as well as experience the physical and psychological benefits of running with others in a welcoming setting.
The group is led by Zoe Jones from the Learning Enhancement Team (LET). As well as being a tutor for LET, Zoe is also a Postgraduate Researcher on the Doctorate in Education programme. She is a qualified Running Fitness Leader and enthusiastic about sharing her passion for running with others.
