Want to get active after having a baby and struggling to find the time or energy? Come along to FREE running sessions and bring your baby or toddler in the buggy too. A series of eight sessions progressing up to a 5k or 10k race at the end, which you’ll also be entered into for free! No specialist equipment required – just your trainers and a buggy for your child. And if you want a chat or a rest after, we’ll find a local cafe or spot in the park.

The programme is a series of eight weekly sessions starting on Tuesday 4th August. At each session, we’ll cover different aspects of running to help you to get fitter and faster and fully prepared for the race at the end. You’ll also be given guidance on what to do with yourself and your baby over the rest of the week and tips on how to incorporate exercise into your new life as a parent.

Where: Hackney Downs Pavilion, E5 8NP

When: Tuesdays, 10-11am, starting from Tuesday 4th August for eight weeks

Booking isn’t essential but is advised. If you want to book or have any questions, please contact hello@runwithholly.co.uk

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need a specialist buggy?
    You don’t need a specific pram or buggy – if you’ve got a three-wheeler then bring it, but if you haven’t then don’t worry. I’ll ensure the sessions are suitable for all.
  2. What should I wear?
    Layers of clothes – you never know how hot you’re going to get! Good trainers. Good fitting and supportive sports bra, particularly if you’re still breastfeeding.
  3. What if it rains?
    Wear something water resistant and bring a raincover for your buggy. We’ll be out come rain or shine.
  4. What not to forget?
    Water for yourself and drink for your baby, rain cover/sun shade, snacks for your child, suncream.
  5. How do I prepare?
    Feed your baby before you come to the session. This means your baby is more likely to be content for the session (although never guaranteed unfortunately!), and if you’re breastfeeding it will also mean you’re more comfortable to exercise.
