Running groups at ARU

ARU's running groups aim to provide fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunities whatever your ability.

Running in a group can help you stay motivated and focused on running. It is a great way to meet new people who like to run and talk. You are also less likely to skip a session if there are people expecting you to turn up.

Running in a group also provides safety and if someone gets injured or feels ill there is always someone there to help.

  • Cambridge group: Thursday 17:15-18:15 - meet at Helmore Gym
  • Chelmsford group: Tuesday 17:15-18:15 - meet at Mildmay Sports Centre
