About

We are a local friendly running club that are based in north Solihull.

We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm and have a number of distances and paces to suit everybody.

The meet point is the foyer of North Solihull Sports Centre, B37 5LA.

Our founder, John Walker started the running club in the 1970's as part of his mission to make running accessible to the masses. John was one of the pioneers in marathon running to all, he began 'the peoples marathon' in March of 1980, a marathon for all to enter, prior to this it was only elite runners than could take part in marathons.

We are very proud of our history and owe a lot of it to John, this is why we are a fun, sociable club available to all. We recommend anybody thinking of starting running or wanting to join a club that prides itself in its 'for all' attitude, please come down.
