Running Society

Welcome to the Running Society!

Our society was established in September 2023, so we're excited to be going into our second year "up and running" !

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 :)

We love to get involved in local running races as a club, and often go for a coffee/lunch afterwards. We also aim to group fundraise for these next year!

Please look on our instagram @CardiffMetRunningSociety to view our current timetable, this will be posted monthly and pinned at the top of our page. 

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

We also do lots of socials! Sober and with alcohol, you can expect to see things like parties, nights out, meals, coffees and more! 

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

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 ;) 

Feel free to email/DM us with any queries, we'd love to hear from you and will reply as soon as possible.

What do we have planned for September??

- we'll be at Freshers' Fayre on 25th September, ready to answer any questions you may have, and open to any suggestions too!

- we're planning on a Freshers' Fun Run, which will be a place for Freshers to meet new people in the first week, and not feel any worries about not knowing anyone, as everyone will be in it together!

- a September BBQ in the park, to make the most of the September sun and reconnect after a long summer, and to meet the new faces and ease into the new academic year.

This is just for September!!! Join us to find out what else we have in store...

In the meantime...

Take part in our summer challenge: 

Good Luck!
