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. 

Covid-19 Guidance (updated 23 December 2020)

We hope you will continue to run during this period of further restrictions, taking note of the relevant government guidelines.

Running with others in your households, or one other person from another household is permitted.
Please be aware of others on pavements and paths and give way when necessary.

Well done everyone!
 
But that wasn't enough for Jennifer who decided to run from
Winchester to Salisbury and back on her own. A total of 95km.
An amazing achievement Jennifer!!
During the time when our regular group runs were not possible Worthy Runners kept motivated with weekly selfie challenges. See the results of our challenges in the photos.
