Couch to 5k is back

If you’ve never been a runner before (or not recently) the Cotteridge Park Couch to 5k group is a great place to start.

Friendly, supportive people here to help you get off the sofa and give it a go.

You can join in at any of the Tuesday or Thursday sessions during the 1st 3 weeks.  Course start on Tuesday 18th September at 6.30pm.  Meet at the car park.  It’s free and on your doorstep – there’s no reason not to!

Support Cotteridge Park - Make a Donation

The Friends of Cotteridge Park needs your help to continue running free community activities.

Can you donate some money every month to keep these activities running for free now that grant funding is less available?

Click here to donate securely via Just Giving – you can even add Gift Aid to make your donation go further.

Whether it’s £2 a month or £20 it will make sure that all activities can stay free at the point of delivery.

Your money will not be used to do the tasks that are the responsibility of Birmingham City Council – you already pay Council Tax for those.
