Some of our club members are joining in with RED January this 2024.

It’s to encourage more of us to run, walk, skip, dance, try no sports and move a little more each day.

Find out what RED January is all about here.

This winter we took part in each X Country races around the county.

We travelled up together and cheered each other on along the way.

Some of us take part in every year and others came for the first time, taking on the mud, hills and with big smiles at the end.

Come and join us for a HiiT training session to build your strength and support your running goals. And have fun while doing it.

You’re welcome to do as little or much as you like, as quick or slow as you feel comfortable.

We’re all in it together! (Included in your Club membership)

In October we held our AGM for all members.

We relived the highlights of 2023, thanked the outgoing committee, welcomed in the new committee and enjoyed a wonderful meal together.

We also held our annual awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements and success of many of our club members including inspirational runner of the year, top newcomer and best running route of the year.

Most of our weekday runs take place in the evening, but every week (without fail) there’s a group of us who head out at 7am to fit in a run before work.

We often stay for coffee after, and there’s always a chance to turn around sooner so whether you’re training or just getting back from injury, you’re always welcome.

See you there!

Kickstart your running in 2022 and join us for a run!

We’re looking forward to a year of running together and supporting each other on social runs and or races.

We run every week from various locations around Brighton and Hove – and we’d love to have you join us on a trial run. Just last week 8 new runners joined us and another 9 are confirmed for this week!

Get ready to (re)start running this autumn

We’re delighted to announce TWO running courses for this autumn.

When: Starting October 14
Where: Brighton and Hove

Beginners Course
Our Beginners Course is designed for those wanting to run and starting from the beginning, or those who have run but some time ago.

Running with a group can gave give you motivation, it’s social, meet new people with a common goal, have fun, and get out in the open air.

You may also visit parts of Brighton & Hove you have not been to before. The course follows an approved training plan (England Athletics), which has been used by our club for many years with great success.

The 10 week course costs £35.00.

Please register for the first session even if you cannot attend, so we can process the payment.

Register today

We look forward to meeting and running with you.

Return to Run
Our Return to Run is a walk/run programme designed to ease runners back into running after a break.

If you haven’t been running recently but want a friendly and supportive course to help you get back and enjoying running, this course is for you!

The RISE 8K is a highlight in the running calendar for women across Brighton and Hove.

This year was no exception, and with so many Brighton and Hove Women’s Running Club (BHWRC) members signed up as volunteer marshals and runners to support the event, we were all looking forward to a wonderful celebration of running for a worthy cause with women in the running community.

When the race turned to a virtual event, we were disappointed that we weren’t all going to meet together for the first race in months, but BHWRC were not deterred.

Our Club Captain set up a fundraising page, raising £590 from generous members, family and friends.

Throughout the week when we could run the RISE 8K, run leaders organised small groups to join them on an 8K around Brighton and Hove, while other runners ran solo or inspired other people to join them.

We hope that next year we will be able to reunite with everyone on the start line in 2021, but there is no doubt 2020 will be a memorable RISE 8K.

Well done to all the runners of BHWRC for rising to the challenge, showing your commitment to complete the race, albeit virtually and enjoy the company of other runners to raise money for such an important charity.

We look forward to seeing everyone’s medals in the coming weeks – keep an eye on Instagram.
