Join Our ‘Up & Running’ Mixed Jogging Facebook Group!
Here at WUAXC, we understand that running competitively is not for everyone. Some run to socialise, to relax or even just to avoid piling on the inevitable pounds that come with Uni life!
Our new mixed jogging and development group, ‘Up and Running’, is a more relaxed way to run with the club and offers an opportunity to improve your general fitness and meet some really great people in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
Jogging has always been an integral part of WUAXC and some people find it is a less intimidating way to enter the club. There is no pressure at all. You can turn up to as many (or as few) sessions as you like. We are a mixed ability group and the pace is set at that of the slowest runner. We meet up for varied runs three times a week as a group, but most of us also go to the club circuit sessions as well.
You’ll be amazed how quickly you will improve. Many members who began as a jogger in their first year at Warwick have been regularly competing in Cross Country League Races and even Half Marathons by the time they graduate!
In addition to those run by the club Social Secs, the jogging group will have its own exclusive socials. In the past, these have included – but are not limited to – baking, dinners out, cocktail nights, pizza and film evenings, coffee and cake socials, and nights out. You’d be amazed that we actually have time to do any running.
Even if you have barely run in your life before, do not fear! We start each term going very slowly and not very far to ease ourselves in. You’ll be amazed by the progress we make by Week 8!
We have a great time, are all really good friends and essentially just want to keep fit and/or improve on our running and general fitness. So come along to one of our sessions or socials – it’s really not scary, promise!!
Libby Johnson is our Jogging Captain for 2017/18.
