As Coach Katie, I own and run a successful running group in Tilehurst, (un)imaginatively called Tilehurst Runs Together.
The group was formed in 2017 and has grown into a community of excellent runners, all striving to achieve their best. Each session is home to a range of athletes, including complete beginners, those aiming to smash their personal bests and those training for marathons.

You can see more about Tilehurst Runs Together on our various social media channels or check our booking site here. If you’re still not sure, contact me for more information.
