The social world of the Green Heart Runners
The Green Heart Runners is a club I established in June 2019.
We are a friendly group of runners from the University of Birmingham’s staff community, who currently meet weekly on the Green Heart at the centre of the University’s Edgbaston campus.
We believe in having fun, getting fit and meeting new people.
Currently we are a virtual running club but new members are still joining – drop me a line if you’re interested to find out more!
I very much look forward to the day when running events are back on. When they are, we’ll list them here. Until then, stay solo and stay safe 🙂
