I love the social part of SRG and it’s like being part of an extended family, everyone looks out for each other and are so friendly. My run on a Monday with the group certainly sets me up for the week which I love.

What I love about Up and Running is the support that you get from everyone in the group, no one gets left behind and the encouragement that people give you is second to none. I have also made lots of new friends with people from this group. It’s also great that everyone mixes with everyone, also bringing friendship between all the different running clubs in the area.
