If you’re already running and not looking for a structured programme, but simply want to run with like-minded ladies, improve your technique or enjoy the social aspect of running, then our membership option is perfect for you.
How does it work?
Athena membership gives you access to a number of Social and Development runs each week, with no limit on the number you can attend. You’ll also get access to our member community, which provides a supportive and friendly environment to share your running experience with. We recommend one Social run and one Development run a week, but you are free to attend as many or as few sessions as you like.
Come running with a group of ladies as we explore the streets of St Albans. Our social runs have three running pace options 6/km, 7/km and 8/km so there is a group for everyone to feel comfortable. They are a chance to meet like-minded ladies for a run. All the social groups are led by one of our qualified run leaders who will provide a warm up, cool down and a planned route.
Our development sessions are taken by our qualified run leaders and aim to help you develop your running and keep your training interesting. They push you that little bit harder by doing elements of running you may not be used to all the time, such as Indian hill running, fartlek and mobility work. Don’t worry - these aren’t so daunting in a group!
Our Membership also allows you access to our social calendar, members only Facebook page and our private WhatApp groups. This is where Athena ladies often arrange to meet for local runs, events and to cheer each other on when they’re not running themselves.
Our social calendar includes events around the educational aspects of running, such as nutritional talks and stretching classes, as well as non-running social activities such as spa days and trials of other fitness classes. Have a sneak peak here.
Here at Athena Ladies’ Running Club we see ourselves as less of a club and more of a community, and we love the support that all the ladies give each other.

We welcome everyone but we would just like to find out a bit more about you and your goals so we can ensure we get you running with ladies of a similar ability.
If membership is the best option for you, we will arrange a taster session for you to come and see if you like us!
