Earlsdon Running Club is a friendly and informal running club that likes to help beginners get off the ground and existing runners stay motivated. We’re here to motivate, educate and get you moving. We meet for all our runs at the Lean Body Vision studio.
16th March 2020 – it is with great sadness that we are SUSPENDING ALL EARLSDON RUNNING CLUB CLASSES AND COURSES in light of the governments announcements to not have gatherings. We are so sad to do it but cannot see any other responsible action and want to put the health of our team and you guys above anything else.
We do however plan to do some online training classes as well as still support each other running virtually so please please keep running and thank you SO much for supporting our club. In uncertain times of running a small business we know how lucky we are to work with such awesome clients. THANK YOU for all your support. Anyone in our current total beginners or half marathon group we will make up your missing runs to you we promise.
