HJ #runandtalk Events


#RunAndTalk Tuesdays

The next RunAndTalk  events will be held on the following dates:

1st February

1st March

5th April

3rd May

7th June

5th July

Our #RunAndTalk Tuesdays are open to everyone, and have proved very popular. These provide a great opportunity to meet and chat with fellow members,  offer the chance for people to reconnect with the club if they aren’t currently able to run for whatever reason, or simply if anyone wants to pop along to find out more about HJ!

On the above dates there will be at least one dedicated RunAndTalk / ‘Introduction to HJ’ group on offer, alongside our regular group runs, leaving BBH at 7pm.

As we have more than one leader,  pace and distance can be adjusted to suit – everyone will be accommodated.

Afterwards, whether you have run or not, please join us in the leisure centre café, from approx. 8pm –  where tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided!

Our trained RunAndTalk Mental Health Champions are also on hand for a chat, in confidence, and can help signpost runners to other support networks if required.


As a club we will also be participating in other England Athletics national campaigns, including #RunAndRevise, Time to Talk Day (3rd Feb) and World Mental Health Day.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.


An Evening with Phil Hewitt.

We had a fantastic, inspirational evening in the company of Phil Hewitt; marathon runner and author of Outrunning The Demons (Bloomsbury, 2019).

Phil talked honestly and emotionally about the massive mental health benefits of running, his own experiences and those of the people he interviewed for his brilliant book.

The evening was attended by over 60 of you, including our guests from Mels Milers running club. We hope everyone who came along enjoyed the talk, and hope to host some similar events in the near future.
