  • Hi Katie great to see you are still working on your research. I know a lot of our members have already answered your survey in the last couple of months. You might be lucky enough to catch some of our newer members as they are coming up to graduation now. Hopefully the results of the survey will help to get the message across to more People. Again good luck with your survey.

  • I've already filled it in ;-)

  • Many thanks and thanks to those who have already completed :-) I am alomost at 1000 respondents so once I reach that mark will be analysing the data and letting everyone know the results! Exciting times for Couch to 5K :-)

  • I hadn't seen it before so have now completed it.

  • Many thanks I really apprecitate that. Hope the running is going well :-)

  • There are many of us with adverse medical conditions which affect our ability to do Couch to 5K... which does not mean that we haven't completed C25K and become a lot fitter!

  • Thats great news :-) The question on the survey is to just to ensure that taking part in the research will not cause harm to you in any way. If you have been using the app already you will be completely fine to complete the survey. It is just a clause that has to be on the consent section. Many thanks, Katie
