Training Hub

We’re passionate about running and fitness, both for personal health and wellbeing, and for society as a whole

We believe that events such as the BATHALF are part of the solution, not the problem. Our events inspire participation, provide a pathway into regular exercise and a platform for competitive sport, for our local community and beyond

The benefits of physical fitness, regular exercise and healthy living are clear. Your chances of catching COVID-19 will be reduced, and the likelihood of developing serious complications from COVID-19 will be substantially reduced if you are physically fit and a healthy weight. When the COVID pandemic retreats the UK will still be facing an underlying and growing epidemic of lifestyle diseases caused by lack of exercise and poor diet : obesity, diabetes, heart disease, hyper tension, many cancers, stress, anxiety, depression and dementia can all be either cured or substantially improved by regular exercise and healthy living

We are developing a series of new training plans for runners of all abilities from beginners, to intermediate and advanced runners, to support your training across a range of distances from 5km to 10km and half marathon
