your time, your space, your pace.
Our community is about freedom so we don't want loads of rules. But there is a TMR way that we're proud of. It's what empowers women to take the first step to come along to their first run, and it's what keeps them coming back week after week. So think of this as a pledge that binds all the women who come to our runs together, in one big happy family.

We Are Family
If you are looking for a competitive ‘running club’ then This Mum Runs is not for you. We are a community and a family. We are about empowering others not being faster than each other. We support one another, stick together and are our own biggest cheerleaders. We celebrate each other’s achievements as if they are our own. #WeAreTMR.
We Run Rings
We welcome all abilities* and we run to time not pace. We love helping everyone to have the run they want. So we run in loops. Faster ones can run ahead and around, cocooning the slower ones in running love. We take pride in it because it means we never leave anyone behind. Looping is what we do, embrace da loop!
We Share The Love
There is not enough love in the world for our Run Angels, they are the stars of the TMR show. When they volunteer to lead a run, they are doing the most unselfish of things; making it your run not theirs. And that is their precious gift to you. Treasure it. Be on Time. Listen to them. Warm Up. Work with them to keep the group as one. Show them the love.
Be a Friend
We’ve all been the new girl and yes, sometimes it sucks. Not with us though. So say hello if you see someone new or buddy up with someone different each week - a smile and lovely welcome could make someone’s week. You never know how much courage it may take someone to just turn up. Soon you'll all have a wonderful new circle of friends to run with. #Goals
We Love a Good Selfie
We run for headspace, friendship and fun. Our runs are as much about seeing the sights of our cities and taking a cheeky selfie as they are about the run itself. So we run, but we run at the speed of chat. And if we see a good spot, we’ll always stop for a pic and share it when we get home. Not only is it proof of smug points, it will give others a little nudge to get off the sofa and out the door. Win Win.
It’s not All the Gear but Some Gear is Good
Come dressed to run. Nothing fancy is needed but cushioned trainers and a decent sports bra will protect all your assets. We've got some lovely stuff in our store too if you want to kit yourself out in the basics. Leave your headphones at home because it’s safer without and we love to chat.
We Give Back
We are a 'karma community', we give more than we take. If you love what we do and want to give back, we’d love you to join our Run Angel team. Full training and a whole lotta love are available in return. If you'd like to get involved, then please get in touch.
You can also learn more about the role here.
* While all abilities are very welcome, we do ask that you are comfortable running for 30 minutes.
We have free courses available to help you with this if you are a beginner or want to build your confidence before joining a run.
Join the TMR Run30 program and go from zero to 30 minutes and enjoy it too!
