Let’s get London moving!

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Camden Council which will support complete beginners become more active with the One You Couch to 5K running app.  

The campaign, aimed at increasing activity levels in Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and lower socio-economic groups (LSEG), offers encouragement and practical tips to support new exercise habits using the One You Couch to 5k running App. BAME and LSEG communities have seen activity levels disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown restrictions. Unfortunately, such inequalities are not new. 

To support these groups, the One You Couch to 5K app offers a nine-week programme that can encourage even complete beginners to become more active by making running easy and fun.  

Starting with a walk and then running for just a minute at a time, the programme sets realistic expectations and makes the challenge feel achievable from the start.  

For the next six weeks, we will be supporting a paid social media campaign including gifs and videos using #CamdenCouchto5K. 

Over the next 6 weeks we will be encouraging people in Camden to join the half a million who have already got started with the One You Couch to 5K running app 

The Couch to 5K running app is FREE, easy to use and perfect for those who are new to running and need some extra support and motivation along the way.   

Download the app today, it’s simple and fits around you: Couch to 5K App. 

To celebrate the #CamdenCouchto5k campaign we have decided to run an exciting competition. Enter for a chance to win day passes to a selection of brilliant gyms throughout Camden. For details on the competition click here: Couch to 5k Competition.
