Are you thinking of joining a running club in St Albans but not sure where to start?
Or have you never run before and looking for that support? 

Here at Athena we are more than just a club, we are a community of women who aim to believe in each other, support each other’s achievements and inspire the next runner.


Welcome to Athena Ladies Running Club! 

Unfortunately our groups have been postponed for the time being.

To be the first to hear when our next groups launch, please enter your email below to sign up to our mailing list.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Please find below an update on Athena sessions in relation to COVID-19 as of 21st March 2020


It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that all sessions will now be suspended.  


However, just because our sessions stop doesn’t mean Athena does.  It has been so inspiring to see our community come together over the past week, supporting each other in so many ways.  We’ve seen help with shopping, workout recommendations, small run meet ups and a lot of much needed laughs. We encourage our members to continue to use Athena as much as they can for this purpose.  


Over the coming weeks we will be doing our best to provide our members with as much support and motivation as we can as a club. This is an ever-changing situation and we will adapt what we can offer accordingly. 


As of today all memberships will be reduced to a Community Membership at £5.  We understand times are extremely tough for some people, so if this is an issue please contact us and we will do our best to support you. 


The Government still advise regular exercise outside, so please do keep running if you are fit and able to do so.  You can run alone or in small groups, but if running in groups please keep at least 2 meters between you at all times.  If running alone, please stay safe and always tell someone the route you plan to take.  Please also be aware of other runners/people around you and keep your distance.  Remember to share your post-run selfies to inspire others to get out too!


We wish all our members, their families and friends the best during this period.  Please take care of yourselves - physically and mentally.  We can’t wait for our first session back, we think it’ll be a busy one!
