***You must pre-register to attend the beginner sessions as they run in eight-week cycles.
The Running Works is extremely proud to support A Mile in Her Shoes.
The London-based charity helps vulnerable women find empowerment through running. Their small team is made up entirely of volunteers who rely not only on monetary donations but also on the generosity of other runners who donate pre-loved kit and shoes to keep them going. They lead running groups and even sponsor entry into races.
If you have any spare / unwanted running kit lurking at home - you can now donate these to A Mile in Her Shoes at our store. We have a dedicated drop-box for donations and our team will make sure that the items go on to do good things.
What to donate
• Technical sportswear (tee shirts, capris, long tights, jackets)
• Sports bras (only unworn and still with tags attached)
• Running shoes in good condition
Please do not donate
• Non-technical sports clothing / everyday clothing
• Dirty items
• Race shirts
• Electronic goods
• Vests or shorts
• Worn underwear (bras, socks etc)
If you're unsure about the quality of your donations, the advice from A Mile in Her Shoes is to donate things you'd happily give to a friend, not the bin-man.
