We are a free run, walk and talk group based in Thornes Park, Wakefield offering a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for anyone wanting the physical and mental health benefits of exercise.
The group is friendly and welcoming with fully qualified leaders on all activities.
We will cover a variety of running and walking distances based on the ability of the group and no-one is ever left behind.
The group meets on: Thursday evenings 5:30-6:30pm and Friday mornings 10-11am.
We meet inside Thornes Park stadium where there are lockers and toilet, drink facilities. Thornes Park Stadium has a large free carpark and is also on major bus routes.
The group has developed from a collaborative 0-5km beginners running course developed by NHS Wakefield Recovery College and Comets. We wanted to offer a progression route for those completing this course as well as a group open to anyone in the area who would find exercise beneficial for their mental health.
Wakefield Council have also been a major partner in the group’s development.
