Getting started

Run Wales has many opportunities to help you start your running journey; from useful resources, inspirational stories and a support network, we’re here to help you along the way.

Why not read how Hannah, our Run Champion, started her running journey……

Or how Richard found running after a successful junior career in Ice Hockey?

One thing is certain, no matter what people tell you, there is no right or wrong way to get started – everyone is different.

Some of us love running alone and joining a group or club just doesn’t interest us, whilst some of us DO prefer to run with groups of friends, colleagues or like minded people, and then you’ll get those of us who love to mix it up.

So why not decide for your self how you’d like to get started! Read our benefits to running solo (below) and group love to make your own mind up!
