We already have Whitehall Runners on a Monday and Thursday night at 7 pm at Whitehall Athletic Arena and numbers are now regularly in the mid-60s on a Monday night.

WISE Runners started on a Wednesday night at 7 pm on 5th December 2012 at Kip Keino Athletic Stadium and 27 runners attended on 9th January 2013.

Dave and Alison Engledew also have Long Ashton Runners on a Wednesday night. In addition we will be starting Harbourside Runners in February (probably also on a Wednesday night at 7 pm) and there are numerous groups that meet up on Sundays.

The club is delighted that six of our Leaders in Running Fitness are ladies which gives us options to have all-female running groups if we need to.
