Welcome to West Worthing Runners
Welcome to the newest, friendliest and most welcoming running club in the Worthing area.
Our aim is to promote the sport of running for social, recreational purposes. Whether you are an experienced runner, just starting out on your running journey or have been running the streets and hills alone thinking about what it might be like to join a club, make friends and run with like minded people, we would love to invite you to come and try us out.
Being part of a club means regular training partners and the guidance of other members with experience of all types of training and racing.
We cater for and welcome every ability from social joggers to seriously fast marathon and ultra-runners. What we all have in common is a love for running in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment – which is exactly what we strive to provide at West Worthing Runners.
We run two organised running sessions every week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, meeting at 6.30pm.
Where we run/train depends on many factors including the weather:
- Our coached running sessions meet on a Tuesday. These are for all abilities and are led by England Athletics trained leaders. In the summer, we make use of a local sports field, which not only offers space but incorporates a few challenging hills. We also train on the promenade at Worthing Seafront which offers a fast tarmac surface perfect for speed, pyramid or endurance pace repeats. Winter coached sessions are more dependent on street-lit areas which are varied to offer a full range of focussed training to improve performance.
- Our social running session are on a Thursday. In summer, slow, medium and fast ability groups run varied routes across the South Downs, through woodlands and along trails. Alternatively, we run paths that lead to the seafront and other areas. In winter, our Thursday group runs are on street-lit areas and aim to give you the encouragement you need to get out in all weather conditions. The run routes are varied enough to get your lungs pumping while you enjoy the camaraderie of working as a team to get those all-important miles in the legs, especially if training for the spring race season!
We meet regularly in the bar at West Worthing Club for a drink and a chat after our Thursday sessions. We also arrange social events at local restaurants and pubs to mark important dates in the calendar.
If you would like to come and try us out, please contact us by email telling us a little about where you are on your running journey so that we can ensure you receive a warm welcome and are matched with a similar ability group.
