Running is an incredibly effective way to lift your mood, get fitter and make you healthier. And you can do it anywhere, anytime and it's fantastic for burning calories. Running can actually help lower your risk of breast cancer, of having a stroke, high blood pressure, chronic illnesses and type 2 diabetes. Not all the benefits are physical, regular running can boost your confidence and self-esteem, help you sleep better, meet new people and leave your feeling more energised, focused and happier.

What our runners say :)
"Here come the Girls link appeared on my FB feed just after I was told I had high cholesterol. Running is tough for me because I suffer with fatigue following 4 years of chemo treatment. Although I am in remission I still struggle with my energy level.
Running has had a positive effect on my fitness and my mood. It's a lovely group of supportive ladies. Thank you"- Jackie
"I am really enjoying the running group and I know that without it I would not be doing it - it is lovely to meet up with others and especially to have your encouragement and tips.
Also the fact that it is free is a real big bonus.
I know that in the short space of time that we have been running I have been encouraged to have a go and I have surprised myself that I have managed to actually do more than walk"- Sue
