If you don’t feel ready to become a full member of Brighton and Hove Women’s Club, you can still go on one of our courses! You may be completely new to running, or out of practice and wanting to get back up to speed. Whatever your interest, we can help you get the most out of running for fun and health, in a no-pressure setting.

Beginners Course Starts Sept 22

Our 8 week Beginners’ Running Course

The course is designed for those starting right at the beginning of their running journey, or those who haven't run for some time.

The course follows an approved training plan from England Athletics and the sessions are led by our qualified and friendly Run Leaders. We'll get you running 5k, or for 30-40 minutes continuously, by the end of the course.

All you need is some comfortable clothing, a decent sports bra and some trainers.

Running with a group can gave give you motivation you need to succeed. It’s sociable, you'll meet like-minded people, have fun and get out in the open air. You may also visit parts of Brighton & Hove you haven't been to before!

Our next beginners course will take place in Spring 2023

Here's just one of the many comments from last year's graduates:

"The sessions were so full of positive and supportive energy. I started many of them thinking there was no way I could do it and each time, with the encouragement of the group, I surprised myself. I'm so proud of what I have achieved!"

Join our next course, beginning on 22 September. You MUST sign up for the first week and pay the course fee even if you can't make the first session.

Return to Run

We all have times, forced or unforced, when we need to stop running. Whatever the cause, it is crucial that when you get back to running, you do it sensibly and build up gradually.

Our Return to Run course is a 6-week programme to boost your confidence on your "Return to Running".

The plan is a walk/run programme designed to ease runners back into running after a break.

"The only feedback I have is positive.  You are all so supportive, its just fab.  I literally couldn't have done it without the group, I had no belief in myself after such a long break. Pass on thanks to all involved"

The next course dates are currently under review and likely to take place in Spring 2023.


Beginners Course starts 22 September!

"Before the course I was very concerned that as I am so unfit and slow, I would hold others up. But I was never made to feel embarrassed or shamed to be last. I was always supported and made to feel proud of myself.”
