What we're about

Social trail running group to explore trails in the Bristol / Bath area with like-minded people.

Beginners welcome - we usually run "at the speed of chat".

I am a qualified Run Leader (LiRF) with England Athletics and really enjoy leading groups in outdoor activities year-round / whatever the weather. The aim is to encourage more people to get off the couch and motivated to start running. I promise it's a lot easier than you might think!

Regular meetups will be held:

Midweek evenings (short training runs)
***Autumn/Winter update - days are getting shorter, expect more road runs instead of trail***

Weekends either Sat or Sun morning (5+ miles)

Occasionally we will post longer / proper countryside routes (e.g. 10+ miles in Mendips / Cotswolds)

If this sounds good to you, please come and join us! We hope to see you on one of our runs soon.

Many thanks,
Matt
