Welcome to Garden City Runners
Welwyn Garden City's Premier Running Club
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 to the Gosling Sports Park any Tuesday or Thursday evening at 6pm or 6.30pm and run with us. The 6pm bunch do around 8 or 9 minutes per mile on or (in the summer) off road, the 6.30pm group again run on or off road but at a slightly faster pace, and our quickest members tend to do the track or interval sessions which also start at 6.30pm.
We also have a Beginners Group that meets weekly on a Monday and Wednesday evening at 6pm. This group provides the support for people getting into running and provides 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 the Gosling Sports Park around 8.30am. Alternatively, at 9.30am every Sunday there is a run of similar duration starting in the same place, but a bit faster.
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".
