Woodthorpe Huffers and Puffers

The Friendly Running Club


Our beginners courses are called Learn2Run, take place each Spring and Autumn, last between 45 minutes and an hour and cost £10 for 10 weeks at the end of which you will be able to run two miles and a further three weeks which will take you the extra mile to three.

The next course will start in September 2019 - keep an eye on the website for details.

To register your interest in the Learn2Run course, complete the Learn To run application opposite and bring it along on the first night or for further information, please use the Contact Us page.   

Didn't they do well!! - the class of June 2013 after completing their first two mile run.

We will guide you through a gentle walk/run programme and have taught hundreds of people to run over the past few years. 

Most people who have completed the course couldn't run for a minute when they started so don't worry about your level of fitness, running experience or ability - we don't care what level you start at as long as you're determined to improve!

Our aim is to have most of you running 2 miles within the 10 weeks, 3 after 13 weeks, some may take a little longer, if so we'll be on hand to support you.

After the Learn2Run course you can join the club for which we charge £25 a year if you want to enter races, otherwise it is £10.
