Weston Whippets Running Club


Weston Whippets is a friendly and welcoming running club based in Weston-super-Mare. 

We offer runs almost daily within the Weston area.

About Us

Weston Whippets is a relatively new running club and was founded in 2015 by Shelley.

After the birth of her 4th child, Shelley was desperate to lose weight and support her mental health and so she started a small running group with friends meeting once or twice a week.

In 2017 Shelley was funded by This Girl Can via the local Council to attend LiRF (Leader in Running Fitness) with UK Athletics and from here the club started to grow quickly. 

We settled our club in Haywood Village with support from the Village Committee who were keen to build their new home into a friendly and vibrant community and we have been here ever since.

Weston Whippets has funded a large number of LiRF and we also have 4 club CiRF (Coaches in Running Fitness). Our team are always on hand to support new runners as well as our club members and visiting runners too.

What we do

Weston Whippets meets regularly for our Club sessions.

We offer many varied sessions throughout the week and all sessions are available to book on our booking system Run Together.

All of our run sessions are led by our UKA qualified and insured CiRF or LiRF.

All of our coached sessions are delivered by our UKA qualified and insured CiRF.

We offer Road and Trail sessions for all aged 18+ on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

We also offer England Athletics funetics to children aged 4 to 11 years. These sessions are managed by Leanne who is our L2 Club Coach specialising in Throws and she is also CiRF. Leanne is supported by a small team who have qualified in funetics Coaching and leading, are qualified Coaching Assistants or are LiRF.

On Wednesday and Saturday we offer Coached sessions to our Youth Team supporting them on their running journey with specialised plans. This team is open to those aged 12 to 17 years.
