Running Society

Welcome to the Running Society!

We're starting up this September, so don't worry about being a newbie - we all are!

Although we are a "running" society, there's more of an emphasis on making friends, going for coffees, eating lots of cake...and keeping active. We don't worry about speed or ability, we're just proud of you for turning up! We aim to make running something to look forward to, a way to make memories and have fun. There's zero pressure, just encouragement :)


There will be 3 sessions per week: 

Tuesday evenings - A 5k route around Bute Park, with the option to do 2 laps and make it 10k.  

Thursday evenings - Couch to 5k. This is a great way to build up to being able to run a 5k, and super fun and encouraging when doing it as part of a group.

Saturday Mornings at 9am - Cardiff Parkrun. We will aim for a group of us to be at Cardiff Parkrun every Saturday, and we will go for a coffee after. There will be options in the future to go to other Parkruns in the area too, if people are keen. 

Note: these weekly sessions are free, no extra costs. 


We will communicate via a Whatsapp group - details will be sent in the "welcome" email. 


Please follow our Instagram page @cardiffmetrunningsociety, as we will be giving regular updates there. Feel free to email/DM us with any queries, we'd love to hear from you.

We have a fabulous merchandise range, including T-shirts and hoodies. The link to this will also be sent in the "welcome" email. There is no requirement to buy these, it's just a lovely way to spot people you know at events like Parkrun, and a way to show that you're a member of the best society ;)
