Beginners’ Running group

Meet like-minded people and build up your fitness in the beautiful surroundings of Wentworth Castle Gardens.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Would you like to get into running but you’re not sure where to begin, or you’re in need of some support?

Every Wednesday our running club for beginners meet here in the beautiful surroundings of Wentworth Castle Gardens. Led by our qualified leader, you can gradually build up your fitness and confidence in running. And there’s our Long Barn café for afterwards, if you’re motivated by the thought of a cuppa and cake (aren’t we all?)

If you are a National Trust member, the running club is free; for non-members, there is a reduced admission fee of £3 for participants.
