i’m not sure i had ever run 5k before this event

Total Beginner
Pam took the steps in March 2019 to take part in the This Girl Can 2019 Walk, Jog, Run in Exhibition Park. She hadn't done any running before this event but was spurred on by her friend and she gave it a go as she saw the event as inclusive and easy to turn up and take part in

"I’m not sure I had ever run 5k before this event (I hated running at school and dreaded the mandatory cross country session in PE) , but I got round the whole way with a supportive friend" Pam even ran 5k again the next week and then gave in to her nagging feeling that she should do the Great North Run (she felt at 50+ time was running out). "The challenge got me out and training and 6 months later I am very proud to say I ran every step of that 13 miles. And I’m doing it again next year ………"

The This Girl Can event was a lot of fun ; it is great to see so many people having fun and enjoying being active in one place
