Join a Running Club!

Training for a half marathon is an exciting challenge which requires commitment and motivation at the very least. The best way to stay motivated and get the most out of your training is to join a friendly running club. By no means do you have to be fast – just willing to meet new people and try something new!

Joining a running club can be life changing. You can make friends and socialise after a busy day; challenge yourself and get fitter through structured sessions; explore new routes to keep your training interesting; and hear about great new events to sign up to (or better yet, enter a relay with your new club members!)

Taking the ‘plunge’ and joining a running club doesn’t have to be daunting. Although many believe that running club members are competitive and the sessions are hard, this isn’t necessarily the case; many clubs are very friendly and welcoming, and their sessions accommodate to all abilities.

So, we reached out to running clubs in and around Manchester to see which ones are after new members, just like you! Check out their details on our brand new page here.
