Welcome to These Girls Can Run Whitley Bay

About our group

Welcome to These Girls Can Run Whitley Bay and our fabulous TGCR community

Our award winning ladies beginner running groups are based in numerous locations across the North East offering ladies the chance to give running a try, or get back to running in a safe and supportive environment

Sessions are carefully planned so there is something for everyone and no one gets left behind. We're about support not speed, positivity not pace and we would love for you to join us

Our qualified Run Group Leaders have all had their own journey to running so understand first hand how you may be feeling. If you take that first step and come along we will help you to do the rest, working towards your running goals be that to run one mile without stopping or your first marathon.
