Welcome to our running and walking groups
About our group
** Covid 19 Update. All our runs and walks are postponed until further notice. Attingham Park is following current Government guidelines and is closed for the foreseeable future. Once re-opened our run and walking groups will restart.**
If you are completely new to running or walking, looking to ease yourself back into some gentle exercise, or just enjoy moving with a relaxed and informal group through beautiful environments these are the perfect groups for you.
Join one or more of the four run groups and two walking groups we currently offer here at Attingham Park, a beautiful National Trust property in the heart of Shropshire. We have fun and social weekly runs which are led by volunteer England Athletics qualified leaders who can help you work on your fitness and confidence in running.
Our walking groups are led by our trained volunteer walk leaders and aim to get you more active while enjoying the beauty of Attingham.
Starting this spring we have a new 'Pooch to 5k' Canicross group for those who would like to start running with their dog. Suitable for dogs or owners who have never run before.
Our groups are small with a maximum of 12 to 15 participants or dogs and always welcome newcomers. Our groups are all off road and take advantage of the beautiful landscape and paths of Attingham Park. We go at the pace and distance of those attending on a week by week basis.
Our main run groups run May - October when the evening light levels are bright enough. Our walk groups are currently every other Friday morning and the first Monday of the month.
We run a week by week booking system to ensure fairness and availability for all those who book, and payments is by cash only on the day.
In the spring and autumn when the main Attingham gates are closed at 6pm please drive up the back drive and meet in the stable’s courtyard for our evening groups.
