Hi people. Just wondering if anyone knows of any websites or anything where you can find other runners to train with in your local area? Many thanks.

Have you thought about joining a running club?  I always run by myself but I am considering joining one locally myself.  Most usually have websites which have their training days etc. listed.

I tried asking on my local Gumtree if anyone fancied some marathon training with me, half expected a few less than serious replies but got none at all

I tried a few sessions with a local club but they were too fast for me and although they were very nice I was a bit embarassed by it (I'm not that slow, 45min for 10k, but compared to them I was)

I suggested to Parkrun they should have a club or a way of meeting other Parkrun runners (bound to find some at my level) but they told me to join a local club so I'm still running solo

On a quick Google search, there's http://www.runningpartners.org.uk/ and http://www.joggingbuddy.com/ - looks like you have to sign up to them. Never used either, so I can't say if they are any good, but you could go browse the websites at least. Good luck!
