Welcome to our group

About our group

We're all about getting out there, having a chat, having fun, getting fitter and socialising. We pride ourselves on our group being a safe, friendly, inclusive and welcoming place for people to come and enjoy running and walking and get some time to themselves.  We have a policy of nobody left behind and a leader will always be the last to finish.

We offer a variety of sessions with something to suit all abilities including a walking group.

We've returned to small group running and walking and are continually reviewing the situation following government and England Athletics advice. For the moment you must pre book onto the run or walk you would like to do as we are only able to cater for a small number of participants due to the current social distancing requirements. 

To give everyone that may wish to attend an opportunity to do so we are releasing slots on a weekly basis - for the following week. You sign up to one main booking and then will be assigned a group depending on your preference of pace, running, run/walk etc.  Please do not use the run booking link for the health walk or the new couch 2 5k programme starting in September.

*If you feel unwell prior to walking or running - please do not join the group at this time*

We've got lots going on at the moment too with online sessions if you cannot get booked onto one of our small group run or walks - monthly and weekly virtual challenges that will help keep you motivated, active and sane during this strange time. You can join our virtual run and walk group at Strava and stay connected to us during your runs and walks - guaranteed major kudos from our group members or join our Facebook page and group Coxhoe Runaways or email us at coxhoerunaways@outlook.com for copies of our social distancing activities.

Most importantly - stay safe and take care and we hope to see you all soon.

For our sessions:

You must register with RunTogether, select Coxhoe Runaways as your group and book yourself onto our runs.  This helps us to know you we're expecting and enables us to mark you in / out of runs so we can keep you all safe!

We look forward to meeting you!
