SRG is a really friendly, welcoming, sociable group of people. Feeling part of a group encourages you to be more committed to going to the run each week & promotes accountability. Every week we go on a different route, which keeps it interesting – I have discovered parts of Harrogate I didn’t know existed!
My outdoor running confidence has greatly improved, along with my fitness levels & stamina. Incorporating regular running into my lifestyle has not just had a positive impact on my physical health, but also my mental health. Running on a Monday evening really does set you up for the week with a positive mindset and gives you the confidence to take on whatever the rest of the week will throw at you!
I joined SRG in September 2018 and it has had a positive impact on my life. Everyone is so friendly. The added incentive to attending the group on a regular basis in the form of free t-shirts, etc, also encourages you to keep going along. The group caters for all ages, abilities and fitness levels – it is so inclusive! There will always be the faster runners at the front every week, and there will always be the slow and steady joggers at the back. I think it’s fantastic that the group stops at regular intervals to let everyone catch up and catch their breath – no one gets left behind and everyone is supported and encouraged. Come along any Monday and give it a go.
