Welcome to the website of Sawtry Walk To Run who are an affiliated England Athletics Running Club.
We were only established in 2017, starting life as a Run Together Group before applying for full Running Club status to meet the demand of runners in the village of Sawtry in Cambridgeshire.
We still run our free beginners programmes through the Run Together initiative every January, April and September but all other runs are managed by the Club for which membership is £20 a year. Once registered with us, runners can then become an Affiliated Athlete for an additional £15 per year which is collected by us and passed on to England Athletics on your behalf. Runners can only become an affiliated athlete if they are a member of an EA Club. Affiliated Athletes are entitled to a host of benefits including discounted race entires.
Club Runs & None To Run Beginners meet:
Sundays 9.30am at St Judiths
at The Greystones PH on
Tuesdays at 7.15pm & Thursdays 7.15pm
Club Runners generally do longer runs on a Sunday and between 5k and 7k on a Tuesday and between 4k and 6k on a Thursday. We also offer strength training on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month which is delivered by Chris & Becky of Innovation Fitness at the discounted rate of £3 per session.
Coming soon…10K Improver sessions, Folksworth 15 training and Marathon training for the London Marathon (28 April 2019) and the Milton Keynes Marathon (6 May 2019).
Our Lead Coach is always willing to draw up individual training schedules.
We pride ourselves on being inclusive and super friendly (but still competitive). If you want to see what we are about before committing to joining us, come along to one of our regular sessions at The Greystones on a Tuesday or Thursday evening at 7.15 or at St Judiths on a Sunday morning at 9.30 (8.30 in the summer). As one member posted on our Facebook page…”by joining, you will get much more out of this than just learning to run”.
