Does anyone know of any women only running club in North/Central london?
Does London Olimpiades still exist - they used to be all woman.
I just found one that not only excludes 50% of the population, but is also only for American women!
Seriously though, it wouldn't be considered acceptable to exclude women from a running club, so why should it be OK to exclude men?
see if your local running club has a womans only run, ours does.
Good point, Millsy. Since the Equality Act 2010, it would seem that you can't legally exclude people on the basis of gender (or any of the protected characteristics).
Having had a little read of EHRC guidance, a running club which accepts anyone who applies for membership (eg. there is no nomination or voting process by current members for acceptance) is treated as a business.
Businesses cannot legally choose to supply their goods/services only to one gender or the other.
It's not a "proper" running club but the various Nike Town Running Clubs have women-only sessions, I think the Regent Street one is on a Thursday but don't quote me on that! You can find all the info on their Facebook page www.facebook.com/NikeRunningUK
