Run Wales

Do you have a Social Running Group but want the benefits of affiliation?

Become a Clwb Run Wales Partner!

Clwb Run Wales Partners are our ‘gold standard’ groups, and as such, they should lead by example and be a role model for other Run Wales groups and new groups under development.

Naturally, the group must meet the minimum criteria to become registered with Run Wales, but we also expect Clwb Run Wales partner groups to actively promote and encourage participation in all relevant Run Wales campaigns and events, and encourage their members to join Clwb Run Wales.

There are great benefits to both the group and individual members of Clwb Run Wales partnerships:
