Sunday Morning Runs (Facebook: 'Congleton Harriers and Friends Sunday Rundays' )

Sunday run fun
Sunday run fun!

Regular Sunday runs! If you're not racing, are a new member, or just want some company on a Sunday morning easy paced run, then this could be for you ! These runs will start from Congleton Leisure centre or for variety within 25-45 mins drive.


Start time unless otherwise indicated 9.30 am Distance 8-10 miles (sometimes longer). The idea is to have a number of run leaders who will lead a run each week on a route of their own choice, road, off road, multi terrain (or even ad hoc on the day). This way no one is committed to turning up every week (we're all busy).

Post run there may be the opportunity for tea/coffee depending on the location.

Non club members are welcome on these runs!

If you'd like to lead a run just get in touch ...the routes can be anything you want it to be urban, country, club summer/winter routes, anything. It's about getting together on a Sunday having a natter and enjoying it. 

Details for each week's run will be on the Harriers Facebook page or on the dedicated Facebook group page : "Congleton Harriers and friends Sunday RundaysJust send me a request to join and I'll add you.
