About Us

Message from our Membership Secretary

March 2019

Over the last ten years running’s popularity has increased significantly with the likes of Park Run helping to get runners of all abilities out on a weekly basis. There are lots of options for people looking to increase their physical and mental health through running, whether that be Couch to 5K Apps, beginners’ courses, mass participation runs or serious club runs.

So where do Watford Running Sisters fit in? We are a very friendly, non-competitive, women’s only group who meet up every Saturday to run in Cassiobury Park. We are a mixed ability group and apart from being female, the only thing that we ask of new members is that they can run 5K at a steady pace. We are supportive and encourage each other, making sure that no-one is ever left behind. We often split into groups on a Saturday so there are longer and shorter runs on offer that cater for our busy lives and how we might have woken up feeling on that particular morning. We also hold regular social activities where Sisters get to meet up wearing something other than lycra! Many Sisters do not enter races, but if that is something that interests you there will almost certainly be other Sisters planning to take part in the most popular local events that you can share the experience with.

We welcome women of all ages (18 and over). Watford Running Sisters is an ideal ‘next step’ for women who have completed a beginners course or those looking to get back into running after a break, as well as for more experienced runners looking for like-minded women to run with.

If we sound like the kind of club that you are looking for please do get in touch with us for more information (07565 506511) or come along to try us out at 10am on any Saturday morning, Gade Avenue car park, Cassiobury Park
