Worthy Runners are a running group based in Kings Worthy just outside Winchester. We are a social club, catering for all levels of runners who wish to run as part of a group. It’s free and friendly and no-one gets left behind.
We have a range of ages and abilities, but the one thing we all have in common is we just enjoy running. Our aim is to run together, whatever the weather, and enjoy the outdoors. We usually run distances between 5 and 10 km and whenever possible we love to run off-road.
We have group runs twice weekly - on a Monday evening and on a Thursday morning (details below). Many of our runners also participate in the Winchester parkrun on Saturday morning. Once a month we have a run, coffee and cake get-together. Most weeks we also have groups of runners meeting up on Tuesday and Sunday morning too. If you'd like to join us at these times please contact us for more details as start times and venues vary.
New runners are welcome to come along and join us on one of our regular local runs. Why not try us out if you've completed a Couch to 5km training plan and you want to keep on running?
Membership is free so do come along and find out what we are about.
Covid-19 Guidance (updated 13 July 2020)
Taking into account Government and England Athletics guidelines, Worthy Runners group runs will be starting again from Thursday 16th July (9am on Thursdays and 7pm on Mondays - see Facebook for details as starting points may change). We will run in small groups, each of no more than 6 runners, starting a few minutes apart, and maintain 2 metres distance from each other and other members of the public at all times.
Please do not take part in group runs if you are self-isolating or if you have any signs of illness.
If you are not ready to participate in group runs yet, why not join us on a selfie challenge run? Go for a run and take a selfie at a designated spot – locations change each week!
Take care, stay safe.
