Where to find us and when! Come along and meet us, you do not need to be a member to run with us!
Thursdays at 6.50pm for a 7pm start will find us at Peter Paine, Rosebery Ave, Boston, unless stated otherwise, for group runs of varying distances to take us round our fabulous town. We usually have a 10k (ish) and a 5k (ish) route ready to run. No one is ever left behind on our relaxed social runs so please come along, we think you'll enjoy this refreshing approach to running clubs. We even get you up and running! From couch to 5k and beyond so even if you are thinking of getting into running but don't know where to start, we can help you out. You don't need to pay, you don't need to sign up, you can belong to another running club or just be visiting our fine town. If you fancy a run, come along! You'll also find our most up to date posts on our Facebook page (see the home page here).
Tuesdays are Track Tuesdays, our members get access to Jamie Stanton. A fully qualified endurance coach with over 20 years experience. Jamie's Track sessions are held at PRSA on Great Fen Road starting promptly at 7pm. The sessions are tailored to suit all abilities.
The RunWalkRun Jeffing Crew also meet up on Tuesdays at Peter Paine at 6.50pm for a 7pm start. The varying routes are usually a maximum of 6K and can be shortened or lengthened to suit all. We usually have a running group come along as well for a run using the same route.
You'll find us at parkrun too. parkrun starts at 09:00 sharp on Saturdays at Witham Country Park, the volunteer marshals arrive from about 08.15 with those taking part in the free weekly timed event arriving from about 08.30. It's where a lot of folk start get their first experience of running or jogging or walking, and the encouragement you get will be second to none. It's a fun, social relaxing atmosphere and everyone is welcomed into the parkrun family. Click on the parkrun tab to learn more and follow the links to get your barcode and you'll be set up for a new way to start the weekend.
Sunday, when folk are not taking part in events or races, usually brings along a "Sunday Runday" where members will put a run up on the Facebook page as an open invite to come along for a run.

I don't think I'd be able to run........ I don't think it's for me!
I have weak ankles!........ I have weak knees!
“I went along to a Couch to 5K with a group of friends and ran for a whole minute in that first lesson.... gasping for air I thought oh lordy, what have I signed up for here. The lessons came and went, gradually building up in time running and before I knew it the weeks had flown by, the course had come to an end and I could run for 30 minutes without stopping. YES, 30 minutes without stopping!! I couldn't run to the end of my drive when I started! So where am I now? I have run the Boston Half Marathon on the first anniversary of doing that first one minute of running and have taken part in lots of 10k races, as well as most Saturdays running or volunteering in our local parkrun. As well as this I have gained some true friends and explored, through running, our wonderful part of Lincolnshire. I'm not fast, I challenge myself, and I feel great for doing it. For anyone who may feel shy or nervous about joining a running group there is really no need. This is the friendliest and most welcoming bunch of runners you could hope to meet. ”
