Social Run Group launched in Chiswick by running specialists Up & Running

Chiswick’s specialist shop for runners, Up & Running, has launched a weekly social running group and is inviting runners to sign up.

The run is held every Monday at 6.30 pm. Runners can sign up for free at Up & Running (242 Chiswick High Road) where they will receive a free t-shirt and a unique running card & bar code used to scan at the beginning and end of the five kilometre run. Details about the running route are also given by staff on site.

Runners aren’t expected to go every week and once they’ve signed up they can visit other Up & Running stores around the UK to check out other running routes local to their stores.

Full details can be found at: upandrunning.co.uk/socialrungroup

Join a community of local runners

Up & Running’s manager, George Cunningham, told The Chiswick Calendar:

‘You’ll be joining a community of local runners and friends but we also have a great social side to our Social Run Group so you can meet up with your running buddies for a post run drink.

‘Social Run Group has been running for over five years, (we can’t believe it’s been that long either!) starting with just a few like-minded runners meeting up for a run from our Darlington store. Now we have thousands of runners from all over the UK and now you can be part of the Social Run Group too.

‘Running with us means you are looked after; our friendly staff will be at the front and back of all runs so that we start and finish as one. They will lead the way and help support all runners.

‘Social Run Group is the ideal way to run with a group of like-minded runners and enjoy some laughs and have a good time, we really hope to see you soon!’

The running group has a Facebook page – Social Run Group – with information for local groups to share routes, make plans for other runs and share photos.
