Running

We have a wide range of regular and special running events. There is no membership and our events are open to all running and drinking abilities.

1st Thursdays

Our regular social run. We usually have a choice of routes varying from 5k to 8k, running at your pace. And then all topped off with a half-price first beer at our Beer Shop HQ.

3rd Thursdays

For third Thursdays we try to mix things up a little. We have our usual 6k route, but then we tend to have something a bit more training focussed. For example something like an intervals session or hills run.

5th Thursdays

When there's the occasional 5th Thursday once again we look to do something a bit special, like a magical mystery pub tour or a 5k Time Trial, a whole menagerie of different events.

All runs meet at the Beer Shop on Hermitage Road for a 7pm start.

Specials

As well as our regular run dates we organise a wide range of events, including brewery tastings, seasonal specials and run/pub crawls.

Races

We run at a number of local races and events. And then we celebrate with a post-race pint or two at a local pub or beer shop.

Spond

We manage all of our events through an app called Spond. Click on the photo or icon at the bottom to sign up.

Safer Running Together

First things first...

We want to ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable participating in our events. We want all of our runners to embrace and take the following five points on board before they join our runs. Please take a look and get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions!

  1. Be Well

Before you rock up, make sure that you're fit and well to take part. If not, please just give it a miss - it's only a run, and not worth getting injured/ill over!

2. Be Prepared

We always publish our routes on Strava through our Spond App. Please save the route to your phone or watch so that you can follow it on the run itself.

3. Be Bright

We try to make sure our routes are safe and will advise if running torches are required, but make sure you can be seen by other pedestrians and vehicles!

4. Be a Buddy

We know that there is safety in numbers, so we ask that within each route group runners buddy up to ensure that no-one gets left lone running.

5. Be in Touch

Each of our groups will have a lead and tail runner. They will brief the group on the route and lead the way, but also follow up at the back to help you find your way.
