Have decided to bite the bullet, having just turned 40 , and get in shape. Looking for a ladies beginners running club in the Dordon / Polesworth / Tamworth area. I have not run for about 20 years so will be really rusty so need a gentle induction! Chance to meet and make new friends would also be a bonus. Hope someone out there can help me.

Can only say most clubs are very beginner friendly so google it & see what you get. Richie

As far as I know you'll be choosing between Peel Runners who are Tamworth based or pop down to Lichfield Running club or down the A5127 to Sutton Running Club who are based at Wyndley Leisure Centre.

Im also looking to join a running club in the Tamworth area, I had a look at the Peel Runners but didnt like them and there is one that meets at The Fox pub on a Tuesday i believe but couldnt find much info on them. Was actually considering starting my own Ladies only running club in Tamworth if anyones interested?

I am very interested in a ladies club and also looks at peel but I think they are way to advanced for my unfit status. I am in the Dordon area but dont mind travelling to Tamworth. Please feel free to email me at nessrobinson30@yahoo.co.uk and perhaps we can chat about starting a two man (woman) running club! Lol

Hi all,

I know this is a few years old but I am in the area and looking for running buddies!

If anyone is in the Tamworth (I am in Dosthill area) and is looking for a (slow) running pal please PM me!

You might want to try the badgers website, http://www.badgersbaddesley.com/ that should work for you

Hello folks, I realise that the earlier threads were done a while ago but I was just wondering if anyone was still looking to join a running group. I have been running for just over a year and joined the Tamworth athletics running club. There are quite a few clubs in the vicinity, but just thought I'd let you know that this option is available too.
