Our Mission: Fun running and sound race training for new and experienced runners
Garden City Runners is a club of active runners and joggers, and subscription is only £20 per year. Just come down any of our training sessions on Tuesday or Thursday evening at 6.30pm and run with us.
We have three or four groups doing a steady run. In the winter months we run on well-lit local roads, and in the summer we run on grass, trails and footpaths. These groups cater for all paces and abilities. Or you can work on getting yourself faster with one of our speedwork sessions. See the Training page.
Garden City Runners run beginners courses several times a year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of our next course. This Group meets at the same time as the other groups. It provides the support for people getting into running and a run/walk pace for those of any ability. A very social group, you'll find chat and laughter as important as the running!
Our Sunday run is a cross-country jog for about 90 minutes. We meet at Moneyhole Sport Ground, Panshanger, at 8:30am.
We can help you get round the London Marathon, but we also do other road races during the year, and in summer the Midweek Road Race League. In winter we continue with the road racing, but also compete in two of the local cross-country leagues, hosting a fixture of our own (which we like to think is of rare quality!) in December or January.
Social events vary from time to time and we'll usually email our members or send out message on our Forum to notify people what's happening. To check the latest details, click on "Fixtures" in the menu (above), then click on the "Latest Fixture List & Social Calendar".
