Running groups differ slightly in their structure to that of a traditional Welsh Athletics’ affiliated Running Club. Whilst running clubs offer fantastic opportunities for many runners in Wales, clubs however, are very formal in their structure and as a result do not suit all runners.
Run Wales, a programme led by Welsh Athletics, is here to support the formation of a more flexible, informal and friendly way of providing safe running opportunities for the people of Wales.
Run Wales groups are led by qualified run leaders trained and insured by Welsh Athletics, and we currently support over 50 running groups across Wales.
Running groups can come in all forms and sizes. There is no rule to the number of people that can be a part of a group and a group could be; a workplace running group, a buggy running group, or just be a group of friends who love running together.
