SPECIAL EVENT..... Run&Talk
Lewes Run - Saturday 14 October 2017 at 10am
Lewes Athletics Club invites men and women, current runners and non-runners to join us for a sociable Run&Talk event around the grounds of Lewes Priory.
Its 30 minutes (15 minutes out and 15 minutes back) so you can walk, jog or run and chat!
Everyone is welcome. We want to encourage everyone to enjoy the sociability of running and to highlight how it helps support our mental wellbeing. It’s hosted by our volunteer England Athletics Mental Health Ambassadors and Club members.
Please come and join us afterwards for a chat at the nearby Southdown Sports Club Caffe Lazzati.
For more information contact Anne Hagan on firstname.lastname@example.org Tel 07902 322028 or just turn up on the day!

Autumn Beginners course full. Please check back for details of our April 2018 course or email us for info
Our beginners course is suitable for complete novices and we will get you from walking to running for a continuous 30 minutes/5k. So if you are thinking of learning to run, or coming back after injury or a long break, then do join us. Our beginners courses are open to all, but please note that we can only take runners over the age of 16 years.
We are UK Athletics qualified Coaches & Leaders with Lewes Athletics Club. We run regularly all year round and take part in various events and races around the County so we know running!
We created the course because we know that starting out is a bit daunting and the difficult first step is getting out of the door! So our aim is to get you running in an enjoyable and informal environment with like minded people - using the great outdoors as a backdrop to our sessions. The emphasis is on having some fun while getting more active.
Our course runs for 11 weeks (including a week for half term). We meet Saturday mornings at 9.30am and sessions run for around 1 hour. All sessions take place in mainly traffic free areas using Lewes green spaces near to town centre, and we always meet where there’s free parking available.
The cost is £30 (payable at the first session) and on graduating you can continue your running journey with the club at a discounted rate. If you've got the running bug after completing the beginners course, we offer follow-on improver groups to consolidate your running and after that, who knows? Some of our beginner graduates have gone onto complete races at all distances including marathons!
