Dolly Mixtures

Welcome to the home of running .... ladies running.

Dolly Mixtures - a mixed ability ladies running group with groups in 5 different locations :- Welshpool, Shrewsbury, Llandrinio, Bishops Castle and Bridgnorth. All groups meet on a Monday night at 6pm. Sessions are £2 per person. Welshpool meet at the COWSHACC (Scout Hut in Poundland carpark), Shrewsbury at the Sports Centre, Shrewsbury College (London Road campus), Llandrinio at the Village Hall and Bishops Castle at Church Barn. The Welshpool group also meet on a Thursday night at 6pm and have a daytime group on a Tuesday at 9:30 am.

Our sessions are very relaxed, friendly and fun - you can choose which group you would like to run in depending on your ability and push yourself as hard or as little as you like. We understand that not everyone wants to set a record and we ensure that everyone is comfortable in whichever group they are in.

We hold lots of fun events throughout the year including Easter Egg hunts, Christmas games and regular challenge events - we really do run for fun!
