Lancaster Women's Running Groups

Routes vary, see website for schedule

Tuesdays & Thursdays

We are a small friendly group aimed at beginners and lead runs around Lancaster. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up or just get fit, come and join us.

Running locations include Williamson’s Park, Lancaster canal path, the cycle track (in any direction), Barton Road field and Lancaster University. We aim to keep our runs in the South of the city as many people struggle to get across town at rush hour time.

All groups meet together at 6.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and run at their own level. The beginners/improvers running group (aimed at ladies who have never run at all before or have a run a little and want to improve) generally consists of a 35-45 minute session of jog/walking, building up to including some speed and hill sessions. This is a really good way to start running and gain some fitness and confidence before moving to the other group.  The main group meets at the same time and generally runs for 5-6 miles or shorter distances including hill and speed sessions.

We would like these runs to be sociable and of different distances and run on different surfaces with some being on trail routes (off road). Many ladies are at varying levels of fitness and speed so we adapt runs to suit everyone. Faster runners can ‘loop back’ to the back of the group if they go too far so that everyone is running together for a while. Faster runners can also run up side streets and paths to extend their runs before turning to re-join the group.

Each session costs £2 which is paid on the night or day of the session. We have kept the price as low as possible.
