Welcome to the official website for
‘Women Running Penarth’.
If you’re interested in combining some fitness activity in a safe and nurturing environment with widening your social network and perhaps achieving some personal goals on the way then you’re in the right place.
We are a group of like-minded women who have come together to form a women-only running club. We offer a wide range of groups from absolute beginners with no previous experience through to half marathon training and whatever your age, there’ll be a group to suit you.
Whether you are new to running or perhaps haven’t run for some time, our members find that running in a group provides the motivation we all sometimes need to get us ‘up and out’. Our sessions are an hour long and run both in the evenings and the day time, making it easy to fit in with today’s busy lifestyles.
Women join us for a variety of reasons but there are often bonus benefits along the way. Many members have found that having some ‘me’ time to concentrate on their fitness brings with it a more toned body, sometimes a bit of weight loss and a great night’s sleep after a run!
Getting to know fellow club members is also an important part of our philosophy. When we’re running round the Lakes or the Marina, conversation can be fairly limited so as well as taking part in events together such as the ‘Race for Life’, we organise social events in the winter and summer, giving us the chance to get out of our running kit and relax for a few hours.
We run all year round to help members maintain their fitness throughout the seasons and our location means that we run in a constantly changing and interesting environment. We enjoy the tranquillity of Cosmeston Lakes or the coastal views at Sully Island in the summer and in the winter, we’ve been spotted counting the Christmas trees around the beautifully lit Penarth Marina.
