A concern for potential new runners is keeping up. But don't worry, we welcome runners of all ages and abilities.
Our members include social runners, where friendship is more important than speed as well as competitive runners who race in several Sussex running leagues. We also run a ‘Couch to 5k’ course, with the next one starting in April 2023.
If you’d like to come along and give the club a go, feel free to join on of our regular runs.
We're always pleased to welcome and meet new members, especially to our regular club runs. If you want to come along, just drop us a line in advance, to let us know which session you'd like to join, so we can welcome you and help you find your feet.
Meeting in the Uplands car park on Wadhurst High Street at 7pm.
We usually run two groups depending on how fast you want to go and run for about 50-60 minutes.
In winter we follow the quiet unlit country lanes around Wadhurst- you need a torch and ideally high-viz clothing. The club will provide a reflective mesh running vest to all members.
In summer we explore the glorious local countryside along footpaths and trails.
Meeting every Wednesday at 0930, usually at the visitor centre in Bedgebury Forest, where we aim to run 10k along their all year forest trails.
We do meet at other locations and each week details our posted via the club’s ‘Wednesday Runs’ WhatsApp group. If you are not yet a member please email us for this information.
Meeting at 9am from the Uplands car park. Distance is usually between seven and nine miles.
Occasionally we venture further afield, for example in the last year we have been to Beachy Head, Rye Harbour and the Weald Challenge route in Chiddingly.
Any changes are notified to members by email and also on the club’s ‘Waddies Social Runs' WhatsApp group.
COUCH TO 5K
New or returning to running? Why not join our Couch to 5K challenge and get fit, have some fun and meet new people?
Our structured 9 week course will take you through the steps to help you, by adopting a run/walk method approach, where the walking intervals will get shorter and the running intervals get longer, building your strength and stamina to complete your first 5K run!
Our first course was a great success, with all participants reaching their goal. The next course will start on Saturday 22nd April and run every week until 24th June.
Email us if you'd like to join.
Wadhurst Runners enjoy many social events, particularly around Christmas, with our Annual Christmas Dinner and Christmas 5K Handicap Fun Run which is hosted locally and followed by seasonal refreshments!!
Every year in May we hold an Annual Awards Dinner to highlight both club and individual achievements. This is a great opportunity to celebrate with everyone!
We also encourage non-competitive fun runs to explore new routes, scenery and a decent café en route and for those who are interested in going further afield, nationwide and overseas themed runs, half marathons, full marathons are and have been a really enjoyable part of running with the club.
