As the local independent running specialist store in the area, we are very proud of the fact that we maintain strong links with the local running and triathlon clubs, as well as supporting lots of local races, from 5ks through to half marathons. If you’re looking to join a friendly local running club, you can find links to all of the different clubs below.

Local Events & Initiatives

parkrun – if you haven’t ever tried a parkrun, you are really missing out. It’s a free 5k every Saturday morning at 9am, in a park near you! There are plenty of local parkruns in the area, including Coventry, Bedworth, Brueton, Daventry, Rugby, Leamington, Kingsbury Water Park, Stratford … the list goes on! Check out the website to find out more and how to register:

GoodGym – a weekly initiative combining a run with a community-based task, such as litter picking along the canal, gardening in a school playground, painting at a care home, delivering flyers for a charity … every week is different! The group meet at Drapers, Earl Street (in the city centre) every Tuesday at 6.15pm. For more info on how to get involved and make new running friends whilst doing some good in your local community, look here:

Big Bear Events – these guys run well-organised friendly mid-week races which are 6 hour challenges. In essence the route is usually around 3 miles long and you can run as many laps as you like in a 6 hour period.
