Community Activities at Dursley Rugby Football Club: How To Get Involved

I’m sure most Stinchcombe residents know of Dursley Rugby Club (DRFC) located at the top of The Avenue in the Village. However, not everyone may know that incorporated into the Rugby Club is a cricket club, a running club, a triathlon club and there’s also a gym available.

There is a wide range of activities for all ages which we’ll be telling you about over the next few editions, but firstly we want to let you know about two activities in particular – the Mindful Mile which runs every Saturday morning and the Autumn Walk2Run Programme which starts on Saturday the 16th September.

These two activities are run by Dursley Running Club (DRC) for the community and are as much about promoting health and wellbeing as running. There is no requirement to be or become a member of the club.

The Mindful Mile

The Mindful Mile is open to anyone of any age and children are particularly welcome. It’s held every Saturday at 9am starting at the Rugby Club and follows a one lap course around the grounds of the Club which can be run or walked or a combination of both. It’s supported by run leaders at the club with the particular aim of promoting health and wellbeing. Please feel free to just turn up and see what it’s all about.

The Walk2Run

The Running Club normally holds a Walk2Run programme in the New Year for anyone who is keen to try out running. Due to its success, we’re launching an Autumn programme as well this year which starts on Saturday 16th September and lasts for 10 weeks.

The programme is designed for adults as an introduction to running. It’s fully supported by experienced run leaders, many of whom have previously competed the programme. The aim is for everyone to build up their endurance gently over the 10 week programme so they are able to run or run/walk 5K. The sessions will incorporate warm up and stretching techniques to prevent injury.

Walk2Run will be incorporated with the Mindful mile on a Saturday morning at 9am and a second weekly session will be held on Tuesday evenings at 18.30, starting at the Club.

We have found that by following the programme as a group, participants will make new friends and are more likely to keep it going after the programme has finished.

If you’re interested in the Mindful Mile then please come along and join us with your family.

If you would like to join the Walk2Run sessions or have any questions, please contact Damian at
