How we started

We started our venture when we began teaching people to run in 2013, where we formed our first running club in Coxheath, Kent. Due to the success of this group, Beginners2Runners was born in 2014 and soon after opened our second and third club and have been fortunate enough to open more each year since.

Now, with 24 clubs across the UK, we have care open at multiple locations 6 days a week from Sunday evening through to Friday Morning and our members can attend any session at any club. Please see our Click Here to find your nearest clubs details.

Each of our clubs have a safe, secure venue where we meet twice a week and we are proud that we are able to employ local people to manage each of them them. Each of our Club Managers are assisted by a wonderful team of volunteer Team Leaders, who lead all of our runs. All of our Staff are members who have run with us, many of them having gone through our 0-5k Beginners course and who then complete our in-house training.

Together with our members, we have created the most supportive running community within the UK.

Steve Grantham

With the help of Steve’s mum, Andrea, brothers Joe and Tom, wife Harriett and sister-in-law Ruby, Beginners2Runners has evolved into a family run business who are now able to employ local people to continue to grow.


Although teaching beginners and maintaining members running through our club nights remain a primary focus, Steve has managed to create a fun, friendly atmosphere, where many of our members meet at club social events such a quiz nights and Christmas parties and we have been able to offer our members exclusive trips such as the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge!

B2R Family

We also hold our own Woodland Race each year, which is a great way to meet members from all over the Beginners2Runners Green Family.

Now, with over 25 clubs across the South-East, together with our members, we are proud to say that we have created the most supportive running community in the UK!
