Welcome to Run Academy Worthing
We are a Worthing based running club catering for a full variety of abilities from first steps to elite athlete. Many of us were previously members of other local running clubs and we wanted to put a little more focus on running improvement and coaching. Our focus is on creating an inclusive, happy place where members can enjoy running and enjoy improving their running. Our focus is on providing the support, structure and environment where anyone can find and fulfil their potential. Our leaders and coaches are the catalyst to a better running life; we do this because we love helping people, and we love running.
We believe that running is the cheapest, most accessible form of exercise and is a key to unlocking a better life. We will make that as close to free as possible, with an emphasis on keeping costs down but quality of support, tuition and inspiration high.
Annual membership is £20 per year and includes £14 England Athletics membership fee.
Our name is intended to demonstrate that we are not just a ‘running club’. We are about helping people run better; whether that be with less injury, with better technique, faster or with a group of people that just make it fun.
We fully support the England Athletics 'Run Together' programme, providing free programmes for beginners which provide a great way to get to know us!
In return for your membership we have a group of dedicated volunteer runners and coaches offering weekly support, ongoing encouragement, being part of a team and many of opportunities to represent the academy. In the winter months we focus our training session on Worthing Promenade, making use of the Splashpoint facilities and cafe for a post run coffee and catch-up. We also run coaching sessions at many other locations including both track and the South Downs.
If you are interested in joining us get in touch and come along on one of our training nights for a run and a chat. There is no need to be nervous – Run Academy exists because we love to run and we love to get others running. So if you’re looking for a running buddy to take you out for your first run, chasing a new PB or want a coach to help fulfil your potential, and you’re over 18, please get in touch.
Run Academy Worthing is fully affiliated with England Athletics.
We are now on Strava - Join us and make these numbers look better!
