About Us

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.

Well done everyone!

An amazing achievement Jennifer!!
