Good Shepherd Runners

About us

The Good Shepherd Runners are a  church based running club and we took part in our very first ‘Parkrun’ on Saturday 10th November 2012.   We currently have over 30 runners, with our youngest runners being 8 years old and our more senior runners proudly representing the 60+ age categories.

We currently meet once a month at 09:00 on Saturday mornings at Nonsuch Park and take part in the ‘Parkrun’ 5K event.  ‘Parkrun’ embraces all ages and abilities, male and female alike, and you can run or walk at your own pace.   We have a similar broad cross section of runners / walkers within the Good Shepherd Runners – many of us had never run since school let alone contemplated doing 5K!

Although we are based at the Church of the Good Shepherd, you do not have to go to the Church to run with the Good Shepherd Runners.   If you would like to improve your fitness or are looking for running buddies to help your motivation then please come and join us!




Every Saturday (mainly at Nonsuch) including special monthly events.

Matthew 18:20

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
Here is some inspiration from Isaiah:
 “Make my feet run as fast as those of a deer, and you help me stand on the mountains.” Psalm 18:33
