Fancy taking up running this year? Whether you're looking to take part in an organised event such as the Cancer Research UK Race for Life, or just something you can add to your fitness regime, our running club can get you off the mark.

Meeting every Tuesday 6.15pm-7.15pm at reception at the centre, this social group hits the streets of Kendal for a 4-5 mile run come rain or shine. During the winter they focus on maintaining their fitness. Once the warmer weather comes, more time can be given to technique.

For a small fee the group gets the benfit of ultra runner Darren Wilson's expertise, as well as his encouragment of course. Darren says 'It's a great group and new comers are more than welcome. Sometimes even the most dedicated runner needs a bit of advice and motivation to get out there - that's what we're here for'.
