About Us

 

Bodmin Women’s Running Club is an all women England Athletic affiliated running group.  We are a small club that officially began in July 2011 and currently have 60 members varying in age from their early 20s to 60 plus.  Membership is open to women only with a minimum age of 18.

We are a friendly Club and want all our members to feel safe whilst running, with no lady ever running alone.

We offer support to beginners as well as more experienced runners. Some of us are recreational joggers who like to keep fit while others have caught the racing bug and compete locally and further a field.  We have a couple of ladies who have competed internationally.  It doesn’t matter what standard you are you will always be welcome.

The members that do race can compete in the Cornish Grand Prix Series which comprises of fifteen races.  To qualify for the Grand Prix, a runner must complete a minimum of 8 races, 2 of which must be of 10 miles or more. Each runner who completes the minimum 8 races receives a personal memento at the GP Presentation. This will take place immediately after the Falmouth Mob Match in November.

We have a number of social events throughout the year which is a great way of getting to know others within the Club.  These include a Good Friday Hot Cross Bun Run, a summer Fish & Chip Run, a summer Bar B Q and a Christmas Party.

Regular Runs

Our weekly session is on a Wednesday evening. We meet at 6pm - please use the contact us page or give us a call on our phone number. During the summer months, we take advantage of the lighter evenings and do some off-road runs in and around the Bodmin area - meet times and locations to be announced in advance on our website - see training-nights .

We are not super-speedy and we do re-group at regular intervals so it is not continual running. If you would like to try us out, please feel free to come along on a Wednesday evening and see if you like us. If you do like us, then you can become a member. Membership forms can be downloaded from the Membership page
