Joining a new group can be very intimidating, especially when you are trying to get fit or just starting out. Dolphin’s Jump Start programme is designed to take the fear and intimidation out of the starting to run in a safe supportive environment.
Although Comrades is a huge part of any running club in South Africa, Dolphins has been hosting our Jump Start programme for 4 consecutive years to encourage new runners. Jump Start is aimed at someone that is new to running, starting out and looking for a running goal or even someone that has run in the past but been attached to his or her couch for too long. Jump Start is designed to take the fear and intimidation out of the starting to run and we would really like to encourage anyone to come and get involved. It’s time to ignore that voice in your head that says you can’t do it!
At this time many people are struggling with motivation and a goal and so this is the perfect opportunity. This year Jump Start’s theme will be “Make It Count”. Stop wishing 2020 was over and start making every run count!
Due to COVID-19 the Jump Start 2020 programme will look a little different but we are still super excitedabout helping you along this journey as you “jump start” into a more active lifestyle.This year, due to restrictions, we will be hosting the programme virtually with the help from Jump Start Champions (mentors) who will be looking after smaller groups of participants. The Jump Start Champions are experienced runners that are there to mentor and encourage you along the journey.
The programme will still build slowly from 1 September and culminate in a running 10km event on 28 November 2020.
Our launch evening to explain everything will happen on Wednesday 12 August at 18:30 via Zoom. If you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the zoom login will be sent to you.
