Our Members Testimonies

We have many testimonies of our club members who have been part of our family for a quite some time and would love to share their experience with you.

I joined HWRC in September 2022 in order to try a new challenge- the couch to 5k (L2R) with Tony Rawson. I’d not run for decades and was unsure if I could run for 5 minutes let alone 5k! I stuck with the programme and I made some great friends along the way… I also surprised myself when I actually ran my first parkrun (5k) in November 2022. Since then I’ve progressed to 10k runs, and then my first half marathon in 2023! I was elated! Despite a minor setback with an injury I have continued to enjoy running and I am eternally grateful to HWRC for their support, encouragement and most of all for the friendship and fun I’ve found connecting with people of all ages and all abilities. I am living proof that age is just a number and you can do whatever you put your mind to… with a little help and encouragement of course!


    Since I joined Harold Wood Running Club in 2019 I haven’t looked back. Not only has my fitness improved dramatically but I’ve made many new friends and become part of the brilliant running community. It’s a welcoming, friendly and inclusive club where everyone supports each other. From weekly 5k park runs to marathons and everything in between…there is something for everyone regardless of ability. I’m so very glad I joined
