About Us

A friendly community running club that caters for all abilities. If you can already run 3 miles without stopping, come and try us out on a club night meeting at the Portsmouth Arms Pub in Hatch Warren and the Co-op in Beggarwood on Monday and Wednesday evenings. This club was set up to be inclusive and very community focused, we have a great bunch of people who really look out for and encourage others at all abilities.

AT HWR we believe everyone should be encouraged to run (unless of course you are physically or medically unable to). It is not about how fast or far you run, it’s about your own personal journey with targets and goals. We all have to start somewhere and regular running will enable you to achieve your ambitions (whatever they are).

At HWR we are a very friendly and encouraging bunch of people who meet regularly. Our first club run was on 6th March 2013 and it is amazing to see the individual improvement of people who only started running at the beginning of HWR.

We have two main club nights which start at the Portsmouth Arms Pub (where we have permission to park) and from the Co-op in Beggarwood.  We meet at 7.15pm on Mondays and Wednesdays for warm up and organisation of run leaders.  Each evening we run a number of differing distances at different paces.  Various runs will be offered depending on the availability of run leaders and may include trails, road runs and track sessions. These will be communicated to members on the Facebook page.  There will usually be a 3 mile run from Co-op in Beggarwood for all paces unless there is special club event such as a track night.
