Who are Fitmums and Friends (Fitmums)?
We are friendly, sociable and supportive running clubs located across the UK. You don't have to be fit or a mum to join. Men, dads, grandparents are all welcome!
We have very specific systems of support which means we can support people of all abilities from complete beginners to people who are regularly active. Everyone is fit enough for Fitmums' activities. We ensure that every activity is tailored to individual needs.
At Harrogate we normally offer run distances of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 miles at each session so that you can just fit into the distance that feels right for you. Each distance has a dedicated qualified leader. You will be encouraged to run at your own pace and not feel any pressure to go faster than you are able.
You don't need to worry about holding people up. We use a simple system known as 'shepherding' to enable all standards of runners and walkers to exercise together. Shepherding accommodates mixed abilities in a group and still provides a challenge for those who are capable but supports those who need to go at a slower pace.
We’ve been going almost four years now and attendees have been of varying ages, fitness levels and running experience. What they have had in common is that they want to get fit, whilst having fun with friendly like-minded people.
Currently sessions are limited to 1, 2, 3 and 4 mile groups. Start times are staggered from 7:15pm by distance group. These sessions are led by UK Athletics (UKA) Run Leaders.
We offer 3 free sessions and if you like what we do you can become a member for an annual fee of £36. This gives you access to all Fitmums Clubs and sessions in Yorkshire & Humberside as well as access to on our online yoga, Pilates and fitness classes.
