What people say about ARC:
I really love the countryside runs and the amazing scenic routes. Very friendly club with all abilities catered for.
So pleased I joined this running club. Great fun, everyone is supportive. We all have a good laugh, which really makes the time fly!
As a new member, I was made to feel incredibly welcome. It was so reassuring to know that you can run at your own pace with supportive people.
When I went to join an ARC run for the first time, back in the summer of 2013, I must admit to being nervous – would I encounter the stereotypical running club for the serious, elite runner? NO! I couldn’t have found a nicer, more encouraging group of people to share my passion with. It really is the running club for all runners – no matter your age, ability or ambition…. just people enjoying running together. I would recommend ARC to anyone!
As soon as I walked up to the group that were at the meeting point I knew I had made the right decision to join the running club. They were all very friendly and all took a turn to run with me for a chat and gave loads of encouragement.
Everyone at ARC have welcomed me with open arms. They have encouraged and guided me with my running but more importantly they are a really fun group of people, so whatever your level, come along and enjoy running in some beautiful countryside.
I have recently rejoined ARC and have seen how it has developed and grown to be much more noninclusive and friendly. I am a slow runner and there are different groups to accommodate all abilities, from those training for half marathons and marathons to the ‘social’ joggers like me.
