Monmouth Rock up and Run

Summary of Group:

Monmouth Rock up and run is a social running group. We started in March 2018 with 4 members and have grown considerably. We have run 2 C25K courses (pre covid) which were successful with over 60 people graduating. We are planning another C25K autumn 2022.

We are a social group with no fees and no barriers, our oldest member is 86! We have all shapes and sizes of runners. Pace, time, speed does not matter, what matters to us is getting people off their sofas, out of their houses and exercising in a supportive and safe environment. Monmouth Rock up and Run brings people together and helps build strong relationships in and across communities in our town and surrounding area. We meet every Wednesday at 6.30 pm on Monnow Bridge, 3 groups go out every week: walk/run, run/walk and run groups.

This group is linked to a Welsh Athletics Running Club: Clwb Run Wales
