You’ll soon find yourself running with like-minded women keen to welcome you into the group.

Where and when we meet

The group meet on Saturdays at 9am at Rugby Athletics Track and members also meet informally during the week, following schedules produced by the coaches. Sessions are a mixture of track-based training, core stability and strengthening work and calculated distance runs depending on your target distance, with many of the group working towards carefully chosen group events. Fun informal trail runs are also offered for people who enjoy the freedom of running in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.
