The Sisters Network was born in 1983. The aim was to put women of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities in touch with each other to run together, with the emphasis on fitness, fun, friendship and
Our Worthing Running Sisters group was born in 1994 as a result of an eight week beginners’ course. Most of the beginners enjoyed themselves so much they decided to stay together and the group has been ‘running’ ever since!
The group makes it possible for women to ‘give running a go’ regardless of their ability. We help those who have not run before by supporting them walking and jogging until their fitness improves. We also welcome women who are already running regularly and want some company, even if they belong to another club. From April 2006 Worthing Running Sisters became an affiliated club.
We follow the aims of the original Sisters’ Network: -
We make newcomers welcome, even if they have no running experience.
We make sure everyone knows where they are going on club nights! There is always more than one option. Nobody is allowed to run on their own unless they opt to leave the group
We hold quarterly planning meetings to decide where we want to meet on club evenings. The calendar is then issued to all our members.
We circulate a contact list to all our members to enable them to keep in touch if they cannot attend regularly.
We believe running should be fun and our calendar reflects that. We also have social events, usually in conjunction with our Monday night meeting.
When do we meet? 7.00pm on a Monday evening, unless it's a Bank Holiday, when we will aim to meet on the Monday and the Wednesday of that week.
Where do we meet? Look at our current calendar!
