‘I had the fear that I would be too slow or too much of a hindrance, or it will be too awkward. I’m glad I was disproven on all accounts, the group is fabulous, everyone is extremely friendly. There is no competitiveness, but rather a spirit of collaboration and achieving a goal together. It’s heart-warming really, to meet people and socialise and be at the same time comfortable and enjoying one’s time.’ – Run Talk Run Attendee
How to contact
Where to go
What to expect
Run Talk Run is a weekly 5km gentle jog, and Walk Talk Walk is a weekly walk. Before every meet there is a window of time to meet the other participants and say hello to the group leader.
It’s alright if you’re a little anxious and quiet – we all ‘get it’ in this community. The leader will then explain the logistics of the route (reminding the group that the run is gentle and that there is no pressure to “keep up”), and that at the forefront of our meetups is support… this really is a safe space to talk about how you’re really doing.
Current groups include:
Run Talk Run Chatteris – Monday at 7.00pm at the Bandstand in Chatteris
Run Talk Run Cherry Hinton – Tuesday at 7.00pm at Robin Hood Pub, Fulbourn Road, Cherry Hinton
Walk Talk Walk Ramsey – Wednesday at 10.00am at the Library, Great Whyte, Ramsey
