Training and Social Runs - Currently Suspended

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are not holding any training sessions or social runs, and parkrun is also suspended.

We are currently permitted to exercise with one person from outside our household – if you want some company for a run, walk or bike ride, please post in our Facebook group.  Newent parkrun are holding “personal parkrun events” (run 5k on Saturday morning on your own route) – you can check these out on their Facebook page.  We also have various virtual challenges to keep us going, which will be posted in our members’ Facebook group.

Please adhere to the latest government guidelines, available from gov.uk/coronavirus – they will be more up to date than this site.  Stay safe and well everyone, looking forward to when we can train together again.  Our usual weekly programme is below.

Please note that Wednesday is the only coached session. All other events are informal social runs (often led by a qualified leader, but not always) and, as such, you participate at your own risk.
