We try not to take ourselves too seriously and we try to make our runs as enjoyable as possible. Sunday morning runs along the byways and country lanes of the Cotswolds in good company are as idyllic as running can be.
The club was launched in November 2000 and has grown steadily each month to over 200 members currently. We cater for everyone from the beginner to the veteran and everyone is welcome.
