Run Club Legends


5K, 10K or just OK, for Runners Need it’s not how far you run that matters, it’s that you lace-up, step-out and just go running. To celebrate another year of Runners Need Just Run, run club we've interviewed three Run Club Legends who have put the hours and miles in at their local Runners Need in Clapham Junction. 

 

For anyone who’s looking to join a run club but not sure where or how to get started, Run Club Legends, Cade, Charlotte and Jemma have answers to all your questions! 

 

If you’re already a keen runner and just want to feel appreciated, each free weekly run earns you exclusive rewards. After your first 3 runs you’ll get an exclusive goody bag and a Just Run T-Shirt. Plus for every 10 stamps (1 per run) they'll give you £10 to spend in-store or online. Spend your stamps as you earn them or save them up, the choice is yours


 

 

What would your advice be to anyone who wants to join a run club but is unsure?

 

 

 

Joining a run club can be intimidating, especially if you are uncertain how your skills will match up with the other members of the club. That is what is so great about a run club like Just Run. There is a wide range of skills and speeds so everyone can fit in.

 

 

 

Finding a club that is inclusive and welcoming to new members is important, especially if you are looking for a way to stay motivated to improve your fitness or if you are not interested in competitive racing.

 

 

What makes you come back week on week?

 

 

 

 

Primarily, Run Club has become a social staple of my week. I have made a group of friends there that both run and socialise together as well as supporting each other in races and challenges.

 

 

 

On a weekly basis it is also really great to have a group of running friends that push each other and understand each other's running style. We wordlessly take it in turns to pace each other and motivate each other to run harder or faster.

 

 

 

How experienced were you when you first started with the Run Club and how has your running ability changed since then?

 

 

 

 

I used to run with another run club prior to joining Just Run Clapham Junction but the maximum I would have run would have been 5-10km.

 

 

 

 

Since joining the club I now run 10km regularly and have done four half marathons so far.
