So you think you can't run?

Next run: Monday 01 March 2021

About our group

Well, you're here, you've made it to the website, which means you're thinking about doing something amazing with your life - you want to know more about what this running malarky is all about. 

You've seen the type. The runners. There are those that breeze past your car window, effortlessly sprinting past the queues of traffic.  There are those that wear the costumes - the ones that dress up like Santa who clearly need more than a mince pie or two to make the look believeable. Then there are those who have been to hell and back, who are running their first race to raise money for a personal cause. 

Everyone remembers their first run.  

The MileShyClub is a club for complete beginners.  The aim of the club is to get you to jog that first mile in one go, giving you the skills to take it further if you want to. Sessions will include a warm up, some stretching, and a run/walk session for beginners, alongside a more advanced session for 5k improvers, followed by some group post workout stretches. 

Just turn up. With trainers. That's the hardest part. You'll be in good company with other like-minded people who want to give running a try. It's going to be fun - and worth it.  And remember, no one gets left behind.
