High Peak Running Group is for runners of all ages and abilities, who appreciate the health benefits of running, and enjoy the company and camaraderie that a running group can provide.

Based in Chinley, this small, informal group of runners was started in 2003 primarily for lady runners who preferred not to run alone, whether for company, safety or encouragement.

The group is of mixed ability and the running sessions are tailored to cater for everyone’s needs depending on who turns up!

There are regular runs on Monday’s and Wednesday’s (evening), park run Saturday morning and then pretty much any other day of the week.

No matter what other calls there are on our time, we find time to run, and running with other people really motivates us. Everyone in the group can and does, run with everyone else and it is amazing how much we find in common.

There are running sessions for mothers with small babies, complete with running buggies, and everyone takes a turn running with the buggy, great for cross-training.

Many members have taken part in a running event of some description, whether a 5k, 10k, half marathon or full marathon and whoever is training at a particular time will be encouraged and supported by the others. Some members prefer road races and others fell running. All types of running events are very well catered for in the Peak District and surrounding area.

But running races isn’t what the group is really about. It is for like-minded people who enjoy being out running in the fresh air and keeping fit at the same time.
