Start running

Couch to 5k app

Bexley is supporting the Get Active, London Sport and Sport England campaign to get us all more active by using the free One You Couch to 5K app.

The Couch to 5K app offers a fun 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.   

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

On this page we will shortly be showcasing some stories of local residents who have completed the programme and have continued to enjoy running.

We hope that you’ll also share your successes with us by emailing

The One You Couch to 5K app is free to download from Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store.
