Dolly Mixtures

Pink is the colour of running in Welshpool!

Dolly Mixtures Running group was started by Sharon Davies back in 2013, who asked a couple of her friends to go out running with her at set times per week, more out of her need to structure her running. However, as the weeks progressed the group grew and grew and Sharon was asked to take on her 1st couch to 5k course for even more women get active and healthy. By today the group has over 100 members and they run together every Monday evening.

The ethos of Dolly Mixtures is ‘fun, fitness and friendship’, and the name itself is a reflection of that! It’s an opportunity for a variety women to come together to run and have fun.

Women are attracted by a sea of pink, and when the members are out in force, attending parkruns, races or just on training runs, the ladies are a truly inspiring motivating force to watch.

Dolly Mixtures are encouraging women in the Welshpool area to run, and if you wish to join them or just find out more about these fab ladies then take a look at their website.
