Full details are in our latest news item - please take the time to read it.

We have different running sessions for runners of all abilities. Full descriptions of the runs are under the Session Info tab and an overview of when the runs are held is below.

If you are a complete beginner,  we occasionally offer a Monday evening Beginner to Winner beginners running course, subject to demand.

You can run with any group, at any time, signing up for a session does not commit you to turn up but gives the run leaders an idea of how many people may turn up.  Different run leaders run different sessions. The run distances do vary so check the Facebook groups for the latest details. The upcoming run sessions are listed at the bottom of this page.

We welcome anyone onto our sessions, we always loop at regular intervals to ensure no one is ever left behind and to be as inclusive as possible. Some people continue running back to the rear marker, and some stop and chat - your choice. 


The group often arranges optional social evenings out, all are welcome to come along.
