Running in Oadby and Wigston

Running, like walking, is a great way to get active and help you improve both your physical and mental wellbeing. It can help you reduce your risk of developing long-term illnesses and is also a good way to get out and explore your local community.

Below is information below on getting started, local groups and our new couch to 5K programme coming soon to 2022!


Roadhoggs Leicester Athletics club

Roadhoggs Leicester AC are now fully back open (adhering to social distancing where possible). The club is open to any runner above the age of 16 and they have guide runners for any visually impaired runners wanting to join.

Leading A Group

Are you interested in leading or supporting one of our groups? Please get in touch with us to discuss how to get started and the support available. You will need to hold the England Athletics Leadership in Running Fitness qualification. This course is currently being held virtually. For more information please visit the England Athletics website.

Please note:

You are performing the exercises on and linked from our website at your own risk.

If you are unsure about your ability, it might be wise to start gradually and build up. Also consider discussing any concerns with your GP or other medical professionals.

Make sure to warm up and cool down to prevent injury, alongside staying hydrated.

Stop the exercises immediately if you feel faint or unwell, and if you still feel dizzy or unwell have a rest. Next time try something less strenuous, building up your activity gradually.

Finally, please continue to follow the government's guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
