Hi all,

I'm about to start working away from home in Newent, Gloucestershire in the New Year 4 days a week. As I don't know the area but keen to keep running are their any clubs nearby or runners who get out regurlarly?

Cheers,

Jimmi

Hi there!  I am not in Newent, but in Gloucester which is about 20 minutes away.  I am not aware of any running groups in Newent, which is only a very small town (though possibly there may be a group...there is certainly a small leisure centre at the senior school there).  
There is a large Athletic Club based in the Forest of Dean which is about half an hour's drive,and a good selection of running groups based in Gloucester,including two Athletic clubs, various Run England Groups, groups attached to Yms, etc.  I am happy to give more info about these if you are interested. Newent is also close to  Ross on Wye and a quick Google Search showed this, which may be of interest : http://www.ross-running.co.uk/About.htm

I'm more than happy to give any more info I can about Gloucester groups, etc.
Will you actually be living in Newent itself?
The Forest of Dean has lovely trails for off road running, though sadly is a bit far for me to run regularly.

Isn't there a Tri club in Newent?  Ask at the Leisure centre at the school...
