The Group


Who are we?

We are a group of likeminded women who live in and around Cambridge. Most of us have started in the group as absolute beginners to running and we are always welcoming new beginners or improvers to come and join us on our runs. If you're looking for elite racing this isn't the group for you, the important thing for us is getting out on a regular basis, having a chat and a laugh and feeling pretty great after a run. 

Who leads the sessions?

All our runs are led by volunteer run leaders. All leaders are qualified Leaders in Running Fitness from England Athletics. We actively encourage our members to become leaders themselves and thanks to the generosity of the group members we can fund their training. 

Who can join the group?

We actively encourage anyone who is considering getting in to running to join one of our regular 10-12 week beginners blocks. Our next beginners blocks will start in January 2019. If you can already run for approximately 30 minutes comfortably, you would be welcome to join one of our regular 5k runs which continue throughout the year. 

With insurance from England Athletics, we can take participants age 12 and above. For those age 12-15, they would need a parent/guardian present and we would need parental consent for anyone under 18. 

How much does it cost?

We don't charge for the sessions and there is no membership fee to be part of the group. We do ask participants for small donation which goes towards training up new leaders and other running costs. We run regular crowdfunding campaigns to raise money - keep an eye on our Facebook page for the next one. 

We would never turn anyone away for financial reasons, donations are optional. 

How do I join?

It is FREE to take part in all our runs. Visit our page on the RunTogether website, once you have created an account you can sign up to any of our group runs. It is really important you sign up through the RunTogether website as it allows the leaders to have access to your emergency contact and medical information
