Running can be hard, so we recommend starting small and building up your distance. You can try running through our drop-ins or the Athletics and Cross Country Club.

Running drop-ins

These sessions are designed for anyone who wants a run or jog, wants to increase their running ability or even try running for the first time.

Don't worry about not being fast enough – the group moves at different paces to suit every individual and you'll never be left on your own. So grab your trainers and sign up to this course.

These sessions are suitable for beginners and intermediates.
