The Thunder running club is a new club started in 2012 by a small group of keen runners. The runners are based nationwide- but come together for events. The group slowly began to grow as the runners communicated between themselves seeking advice, encouragement and support.
The founding members were not members of other running clubs as many preferred training alone- and it was the friendship and support through events which led them to search for each other. Unlike traditional clubs which meet on a weekly basis and run together, our club meets at events and supports each other through events, but also has daily communication through online networks to provide advice and encouragement through training (and sometimes even everyday issues).
From five founding members, the club has grown to 28 members in a short few months. The concept of our club is support and encouragement without the pressure of a competitive environment. Our club is nationwide so the events we participate in are also nationwide. This therefore also provides a different dimension to the social aspect our of club as we travel the country to our members ‘home’ areas and run together.
I look forward to seeing you at a future event!
