SWANSEA BAY SUMMER 5k SERIES
WELCOME TO PAUL POPHAM RUNNING CLUB
The aim of the Paul Popham Running Club is to encourage everyone in Swansea to learn to run for life by teaching people to learn to run from zero to 5k and helping those who can run a 5k, 10k, half marathon and more to achieve their personal goals. The Paul Popham Running Club brings together people of all abilities to support one another to achieve their goals and to realise the benefits running can provide to their quality of life, keeping you physically and emotionally fit in a fun, social, family-friendly and inclusive environment. It is our aim to encourage our members to believe in themselves and support one another to achieve their goals and learn to run for life, not just one race!
Joining PPRC has changed my life in so many ways. When I started in March 2016 I was in group one and I couldn’t run 200 yards! I was soon in group 3 and running 5k. In October I completed my first 10k without stopping!!Mario MoruzziLife Changing!
After the first session, I felt great and actually had a smile on my face which was a rare occurrence at that time. Little by little I got myself out twice a week to join the running club and increase my running abilities. There were times when I really didn’t want to go, but through the encouragement of the Group Leaders and the new friends I had made I managed to keep going and ended up running my first 5K.Nadia JohnThank You to the Wonderful PPRC!!
