Cool Runnings

Cool Runnings is the participation wing of the University Athletics Club. Our focus is on encouraging participation in running within a pressure-free environment. 

We run training sessions for established runners and total beginners, with a thriving Couch to 5K program each term.

Our training sessions cater to all abilities and can be as competitive or casual as you like. Whether you’ve never run before or are aiming to complete a half-marathon, we have training sessions for all. Including group runs, interval and circuit training, track sessions and long runs. The club has a friendly and inclusive atmosphere and offers the opportunity to get to know club members at our weekly socials which allow us to build a running community within our club. These socials include bowling, Christmas meals, balls and sports nights at the Guild.

Outside of the club we attend many events such as weekly Park Runs at Canon Hill, Birmingham 10K and Half Marathon, Warwick Cross Country Relays and Coventry 10k.

For more information on membership, training sessions and socials have a look at our social media pages below.
