About Us

Sawtry Walk To Run became a fully affiliated England Athletics Running Club in June 2018 having started out as a Run Together Group in October 2107 through which we still run our free beginners programmes.

We started out as a small group aimed at beginners with the aim to bring new people to running to improve their physical and mental health. However, it soon became apparent that there was a need for Sawtry to have its own running club and its organic growth now means we have over 100 Club members of all abilities from 6 minute milers to those Jeffing (run/walking) and those who simply want to run for fitness and fun. We hold regular Efforts sessions for those looking to improve and often work on group training programmes as preparation for event such as the Great Eastern Run.

We have a full committee, a qualified coach, 11 Leaders in Running Fitness and 2 Mental Health Champions.

We are part of EA’s #RunandTalk campaign which aims to promote mental well being through running -more details on our Mental Health page.

We get involved in community events such as Sawtry Sport 4 All (a free community sports day) and fundraising activities such as our own charity Santa Run. We also help/fundraise for other local organisations such as the Round Table when they bring Santa to Sawtry.

We are also very involved in the local running community and do a ‘parkrun takeover’ twice a year at Ferry Meadows parkrun as well as volunteer at various events. In September 2023 we put on our first official race – The Sawtry 10 Mile.  We received such fantastic feedback we have decided to make this an annual event.

Currently we meet at:

Sawtry Academy Leisure on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 7.15pm and Sundays at 8.30am

Whether you have been running for many years or if you want to run but think you can’t, you are very welcome to join us. There is a place for all abilities, no matter what your starting point.
