JustRun Frenchay was set up in 2012 by Liz and Jess two friends who met through a shared passion in running. Our aim is to bring the women of Bristol together and help them reap the benefits of increasing physical activity through jogging, walking and running. The group is highly successful in achieving what it sets out to do in bringing women of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels to together in a social, fun environment. Our running club has become a community!  We believe that increasing physical activity levels has a positive impact on all aspects of health and happiness, and we are here every week to help you fulfil your potential.

‘After retiring I gradually became less active and became very breathless. My daughter encouraged me to join the Just Jog Couch to 5K course. I was very apprehensive as I had not done any running since I left school, she said it would be a gradual start so I decided to give it a try. I found everyone really friendly and encouraging, by the time I came to the end of the course I was enjoying running and the social side of it.  I then joined the 2 mile group, having friendly people to run with and the encouragement from the run leaders makes it easier to keep going. If I was doing this on my own it would be too easy to stop and not run so far. I have really enjoyed running and would encourage anyone else considering running to give it a go. If I can do it at my age anyone can!’

‘I run regularly in the 4 mile group, it’s a great group for those who want to up the distance but find the 6 mile group a bit daunting! It’s such a friendly group and helps me push myself each week, the run leaders are fab, the routes are interesting. If you fancy stepping up your distance give it a go, you won’t regret it and all paces are welcomed.’
