  • About Us

    This Mum Runs is a fast growing women’s running community providing a genuine alternative to traditional running clubs and gyms for time strapped women who want something different.


    Launched in October 2014, we have grown to a community of over 6500 women, offering

    over 90 free runs every month from 12 locations and a wide range of courses and classes for total beginners as well as more seasoned runners.


    We are women of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Some of us have never put a pair of trainers on in our lives, some of us have run all our lives. What unites us all is wanting a teeny bit of headspace and time for ourselves in the hectic-ness of work and kids and life.


    Find out all about what we're up to through our Facebook page.


    Details of local groups, weekly runs and meet ups across Bristol and Bath are all on our local Facebook communities here:



    Bath and Keynsham



    If you are interested in setting up group runs in your area, click here we'd love to hear from you!

  • Courses

    We offer coached courses for total beginners, return to runners and want-to-get better runners too. Our beginners and intermediate courses are based on time not distance; we've found this is way more motivating and means we can tailor each programme to the ability of the group. All courses are based on a programme of 3 weekly sessions - one coached run and two homework runs, which you do with other local women in your group. You get lots of support in between from your This Mum Runs 'Run Maker' too!


    Our next term starts:

    Monday 6th March 2017



    Run 30

    Brilliant for Beginners

    We'll take you from running for a minute at a time, to running non stop for 30 minutes in just 8 weeks. We call this programme 'running by stealth', it builds up so gradually you hardly notice you're doing it! This programme is perfect for you if you are totally new to running, haven't run for a while or are doing very little other regular exercise.


    £5 per week

    (£40 for the 8 week course)


    Don't just take our word for it:


    "Life changing! I am such a bore now! I tell everyone about how wonderful this experience is."


    "It was so good to have the support of other women in the same position for the homework runs. The coached run was taught in a way that you didn't feel silly if you were slower than the rest of the pack"


    "A really fantastic course which got me off my bum and running!"

    Run 60

    Perfect for runners looking for the next step

    If you've reached 30 minutes and want some help taking the next step then this course is perfect for you. We'll help you feel super comfortable running for 30 minutes first, then for a bit longer. Then we'll give you some simple tools that help you run a bit faster too. By the end of the course you will be running for an hour - and most importantly, you won't be able to remember a time when running wasn't a part of your week!


    £6 per week

    (£48 for the 8 week course)


    Don't just take our word for it:


    "Very supportive and non competitive but pushed me every week"


    "Just what I needed to get excited about running"


    "The course was absolutely brilliant"


    "Really informative, encouraging and supportive"


    "Fantastic - I really can't believe the difference 8 weeks can make!"

    Run 20

    A gentle introduction to running for the over 55s

    This newly designed course is especially for women aged 50+ who may never have run before (or not for a while) and would love to give it a go. A gentler pace than our Run30, our walk-run programme builds very gradually from 30 seconds of running to 20 minutes by the end of our 8 weeks together. Meet other women to walk and run with in your local area too!


    £5 per week

    (£40 for the 8 week course)


    Don't just take our word for it:


    "Fantastic as an introduction to running for someone who hasn't done it before"


    "The best thing I have done in years - it's given me confidence in my ability to improve my fitness and a real sense of achievement"

    Happy Running makes Happy Runners

    "Since joining This Mum Runs I have increased in confidence, I truly believe I CAN and have remembered the me that existed prior to my 4 kids"

    Caz O Doherty

    C25k Graduate & Run Leader

    Running with This Mum Runs makes me glow and I've found a whole new me. The TMR girls get me out each week, keep me going and make me realise we're all just trying our best - which actually, is plenty good enough.

    Rhian Wood

    This Mum Runner

    "This Mum Runs has been life changing for me. I’m fitter, happier, more confident & I’ve got loads of  new friends. Three months ago I could run for a minute, now I can run 10km. I feel like a runner and I never, ever thought I’d say that. Ever!"

    Anneke Van Eijkern

    C25K Graduate and Run Leader

    The support and camaraderie from everyone in This Mum Runs is what makes it special. You can run 1k or a marathon and everything in between. You'll get nothing but support from all the lovely women across the whole community.
