A RUNNING CLUB IN BATH
BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER
JOIN A RUN GROUP – YOU’LL NEVER REGRET A RUN
RUN WITH US AND GET FIT WHILST ENJOYING the beautiful countryside right here on our doorstep
Running has to be the most accessible and simplest form of exercise – just lace up your trainers and out the door you go! BUT often it is difficult to muster up the motivation, injuries can set us back, as can general ‘lack of confidence’ about our running ability. Or may be you’re a runner who is stuck in a rut and needs some inspiration to fall back in love with running?
We are a running club in Bath and our aim is to improve your running ability and stamina, whilst training with like-minded people who are all taking responsibility for their health and fitness. And you’ll get the motivation and accountability that running with others provides – you really will become part of our running community.
Never run before or haven’t run for ages? Not sure exactly what a running club is? Not a problem – read through the Frequently Asked Questions below.
Or maybe you’re training for a specific event and want to maximise your training effort? Why not try some 1:1 coaching sessions with me – I’m a UK Athletics qualified run coach!
Why ‘No Regrets Running’? Some runs you will enjoy more than others, but trust me – you will never regret a run. You only regret the runs you don’t do. And to prove a point, if you ever come on a run with me and regret it – I’ll give you your money back!
Still not sure? Then let Lizzie persuade you…

What They Say…

BASED IN COMBE DOWN, BATH
Run groups are based in Mulberry Park / Combe Down to the south of Bath City Centre.
Group run sessions: these will start at the same point (next to the Curo Sales office / Mulberry Park roundabout, opposite the Forester & Flower pub – BA2 5BZ) but head out to different locations for the main session each week.
Personal 1:1 coaching sessions: these can vary – I can come to you (up to a 5 mile radius from Combe Down included in session cost) or we can meet at a convenient location.
Social Runs @ Glasshouse: meet at the Glasshouse Academy, Bradford Road, BA2 5BX.
I’M SUE, RUNNING IS PART OF MY LIFE
But it hasn’t always been. I started running towards the end of 2016 at a turning point in my life as an accessible way of getting fit (and, if the truth be known, as a drunken promise with a friend!). I was a somewhat reluctant beginner, but after some highs and lows and a few chats with myself, I realised that I really did enjoy it. It’s now become a ‘thing that I do’. I can genuinely say that it has benefitted my mental health as much as – if not more than – my physical well-being.
Roll forward a few years and I’m an accomplished (but not fast!) ultra marathon runner, having completed many long distance events. Along the way when I was training for my first ultra event, I met Kerry Sutton of Perpetual Motion Coaching and I’ve been going to her training sessions ever since! I prefer trail running to road running – I love the sense of freedom out in the country and it’s definitely not about the pace. Give me a few hours on the trails (and a Marmite sandwich) and I’m in my happy place.
I qualified as an England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF) in 2020 and then as an England Athletics Coach in Running Fitness (CiRF) in 2022. I can’t wait to share my love of running with everyone, to inspire, encourage, motivate and get fit.
