Shinfield Running Club

Calling all those who love to run and chat!  Do you have a passion for running? Would you like to meet other like-minded runners?…..Then look no further!

Shinfield Running Club is a free voluntary running club which was set up in November 2018 by James Suarez.  The aim of it was for people to meet other like-minded runners and to run socially together as a group once a week.

Since the club began, it has grown from 5 to 25 regular runners that run each week consisting of both males and females of all ages.   The club has already brought many people together from both the local community as well as other areas of Reading.  Furthermore our social media pages have attracted many followers.

We meet every Wednesday at 7.30pm on Shinfield Green by the war memorial.   Each week we run a different route anywhere from 5km – 10km and we also hold a time trial at the end of each month where runners can really push themselves.

If you enjoy running and would like to meet others who share the passion, come and join us – we are a friendly social bunch! Look out for us wearing our new club kit in May when we will be running the Shinfield 10k!
