Bramham Runners are a small but dedicated group who love to run and enjoy the company of others to keep us going. If you are a great runner, then you can lead the pace – with extra loops to come and pick up the back markers! If you are just starting out then this is a great way to get some advice and support in a safe and friendly environment – we will never leave you alone.
For those looking for a challenge – it’s not just about clocking up the miles. We add options of hills and speed do some hills to help you improve. But please note this is entirely optional.
