Welcome to Howgill Hobblers Kirkby Stephen

About our group

The Howgill Harriers Running Club are working with Run England as part of a national programme to get complete beginners up and running.

If you are a beginner the sessions will be similar to the ‘couch to 5 KM’ programme . A team of licensed trainers will start a series of 12 week courses to coax beginners or people who may have run before of any size, shape and age off the sofa.

The only requirement is that you need to be 12 years old or over. The Hobblers meet at 9.00am every Sunday morning at the Football ground in Kirkby Stephen. An improvers 'Keep me going' group sets off at 6.00pm every Wed eve from the Grammar school in town. There will be another 12 week course for complete beginners starting in January 2018, at the footbal ground 9.00am Sundays. If you are interested in any of these  sessions then either contact Adele Roche 017683 71039 or check out the Howgill Harriers Web site or just turn up, and we'll help get you started .


Not a complete beginner??

If you’ve not run for some time, and want to get started again, or perhaps you lack confidence to run on your own, or joining a club sounds too scary; then we want to hear from you.

We can provide a friendly, supportive environment and organise sessions which can cater for different abilities. You can cover a set course at your own pace- like a park run.
