About our group

Valley Hill Runners are a small friendly running club based in High Green Sheffield and are a voluntary organisation. The running club is registered with UK Athletics and we are pleased to welcome you to our beginners running group : The Happy Mondays!

We have an England Athletic qualified coach in running fitness, Wendy and run leader Luke, along with several club members who who are experienced endurance runners that want to share their passion for running, and help others discover a new healthier lifestyle.

The Happy Mondays! group does what it says on the tin! We meet on Mondays and hopefully you will enjoy the sessions and be happy! 

We are a RunTogether recognised running group and are qualified/insured to teach beginners in running and fitness, and have enhanced CRB (DBS) certification. Minimum age is 12 years old (accompanied by an adult)

Our sessions are fun, inclusive and even if you think you may not be able to run, we can get you from the settee to 5k with a gentle progression and have fun along the way!

Come along to our friendly group sessions every Monday evening at 6.15pm to register and set off at 6.30pm (meeting at the car park on Mortomley Close, High Green, S35 3HZ). Its free too!! 

We also have a 'Challenge Me' group on a Wednesday (meet same place, 6.15pm to register and set off for 6.30pm) for those wanting to continue with their weekly running with the aim of running for longer and at a little bit faster pace - we throw a few more hills in, drills and speed sessions too.

Our aim is your progression, if you want to get fitter, feel healthier, achieve your own personal goals, and generally feel happier then here is your new beginning!! 

We now are pleased to offer the service of a Mental Health Ambassador at Valley Hill Runners who is Pete Taylor. We recognise that running and joining a new group can be daunting but we want to share both the physical and mental health benefits with all. Please join us and speak to Pete or any of our run leaders who will welcome you to the club.
