RTW runners farewell

After 6 years of providing running sessions in Southborough, Joe will be moving away from the area in June and therefore, RTW runners will soon be coming to an end.

A collage of some of our running groups over the years

The group has come a long way since its early beginnings, growing from 6 members to over 200. During that time, we have welcomed runners of all ages, abilities and specialities (including cani-cross, ultra runners, 5km, 10km, half marathon and full marathon). We’ve led a number of Zero to 30 beginners running groups, social runs, social events and our ever popular, “all abilities intervals” running group. We also provided virtual running groups to keep runners active and connected during the various lockdowns.

Joe has continued his coaching development, moving from a Leader in Running Fitness, to a Coach in Running Fitness, Personal Trainer, Exercise Referral Practitioner and now Event Group Endurance running coach.

Thanks must go to fellow Run Leader, Claire Henry who too led many group runs over the years and has since moved away from the area but continues to run – Claire recently completed the Brighton Half marathon.

Finally, thanks too to everyone who has attended any of our sessions over the years and if you’re missing us, we’re offering you one last opportunity to run with us for our 6th anniversary on 31st May 2022 – read on for full details.

RTW runners farewell session

RTW runners alumni

Whilst Joe is moving away from the area, he would like to keep in touch and continue to provide help and advice to the RTW runners alumni.
