Welcome to the Goodwood Runners. We are based out of Soutar Park, Albert St, Goodwood.
Our Start Runners program provides a supportive, inclusive and non-judgmental environment to assist new and returning runners. Our aim is to help you to achieve your running goals – whatever these might be, eg improve self-confidence, have some much-needed ‘me’ time, run your first km without stopping, or work up to running 5 or 10kms. The group is led by Rob, Karen and Angela, and we meet at 7.45am Saturday mornings.

In addition to the Start Runners program, we have two other weekly runs that leave from Soutar Park.
- Saturday morning 6km loop leaves at 7am and arrives back to Soutar Park prior to the Start Runners program.
- Wednesday morning 5km run leaves at 6.30am and is at a pace that is comfortable for Start Runners.
Our group has just two rules:
· We leave no runner behind. If you are new to running, you will never be left alone ‘down the back.’
· We don’t allow the words ‘just’ or ‘only.’ We believe that everyone’s running achievements should be equally celebrated.
We are a highly social group. We are easy to spot at running events in our distinct ‘Goodwood Green’ running tops. We are sponsored by Trouble and Strife on Goodwood Road, where we meet for breakfast after our Saturday run.
