Encouraging you to enjoy running and meet new people…

Joined in May 2018 so I would have others to run with. I’ve made some amazing friends, shared great stories, offloaded my days woes, explored routes I’d have never known, and had so much fun along the way. Love club runs

"I even attempted a few race events"

I joined the club in 2019. I had been running for a year to lose weight by doing Couch to 5k.  I was quite nervous and self-conscious about running with other people. Joining was the best thing I ever did! Since running with the club I have gained confidence, lost more weight and have made some amazing friends! I even attempted a few race events and didn’t know I had competitive streak in me!

I joined in 2015 having got myself from C25k to my first half marathon. I didn’t think I was a good enough runner to join a club before the half marathon. I wished I known the club is for everyone and I could have joined right at the start of my running journey.
My running is a journey of highs and lows as I fall in and out of love with it but I really value the support received and friendships formed.
