The are a number of running clubs and groups in that area:
Epsom Oddballs Running Club
Epsom & Ewell Harriers
Tadworth Running Club
Dorking and Mole Valley AC
Reigate Priory Running Club
All the above are affiliated clubs, there is a non affiliated group of runners in Ahtead, called Ashtead Running Group funnily enough.
Dorking and Mole Valley have started beginners groups in the past, not sure if they still do them.
The specialist running shop in Ashtead (Run to Live) start new beiginners groups this week.
Hope this helps
That is a tremendous response many thanks to all you who have reolied so quickly, that gives me a good running start (no pun intended ) I now have less excuses - drat!
Hi all, new to this site,
I am looking to join a running club in the South - tried one recently
but didnt' feel it catered for beginners, will give it another try next week.
It was great to be a potential member and hear about other runners experiences.
Ive been running/jogging (im not a sprinter) for quite a few years and want
to get better and go for a 5 or maybe 10k run, perhaps charity or marathon.
I get to 2 minutes then my lungs pack up!..so it would be good to follow some
kind of training programme, gain the encouragement/motivation from
other runners, and more importantly, improve my fitness!
Anyone else in the same situation..?
I am starting a Run England running group at St Johns, Woking, Surrey. This is a 'fun run' group, so not coaching but proper warm-up, varied runs, off-road, sociable, free. I aim to take mixed ability including beginners, and the social and encouragement aspect of running in a group is important. We are on the Run England web site and have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/StJohns.Run4Fun/
