When do we meet? 

Every day! Check out the weekly schedule here. Your first run will be on a Thursday, starting at 7.00pm so we suggest you arrive a bit earlier than this. Please introduce yourself to a club member (we’re a friendly bunch!) and they can point you in the direction of one of the committee members. Please email [email protected] to let us know you'd like to come along!

Where is the Hove Rugby Club?

At Hove Recreation Ground which is on the corner of Old Shoreham Road and Shirley Drive. Post code: BN3 6NQ.

Is my level of running good enough to be able to join the club?

In order to be able to complete the shorter run (3-4 miles), you should be able to run for about 20-30 minutes and complete a 5k (parkrun) in <40 minutes. To complete the longer run (5-6 miles) you should be able to run for about 60 minutes .

Run leaders will stop to allow people to catch up and make sure no one is left behind. We also have back markers on the runs.

How much does it cost?

It costs £34 per year which includes membership to England Athletics (which is £17).

Membership runs from April each year. But you're welcome to join us at any point in the year and we'll let you know if a reduced joining fee is possible.

The cost covers your insurance as an athlete, weekly club activities and entitles you discounts on most races within the UK.

How do you embrace diversity and inclusivity?

We are committed to providing opportunities that are safe, inclusive, accessible and equitable for all women, including transwomen.

We have an inclusion policy and as part of that we have adopted the Stonewall Rainbow Laces guidance to create a safe space for LGBTQ+ women and allies.

Our Code of Conduct clearly sets out our expectations of members and is explicit that we will not accept bullying, harassment, discrimination or victimisation of any kind.

Our policy sets out how we deal with any members found breaching our code, which may include expulsion from the club.

See the Welcome Pack for more detail.
