Walsall Arboretum Running Club was formed in 2012 with just 6 regular runners meeting every Monday evening. In 2020 the club became England Athletics affiliated for the first time. The club now has over 120 runners registered and between 40-50 regular runners every week. We have members of all abilities, from seasoned runners to fun runners and all are welcome regardless of age, gender or experience.
Each session is broken down into 3 groups, 10k and beyond. 5-10k and beyond and every 12 weeks 0-5k weekly programme starts, this is designed to get you running, getting healthier and fitter. The groups are given regular tasks, hill work, speed, distance, endurance and strength. Routes vary and depend on weather conditions.
Each group is accompanied by a nominated member(s) at the front and the back, who ensure that no one runs unsupported.
