Taking up running can be daunting, especially if you feel out of shape or unfit. BTFC Runners want to help give people the confidence and skills to become more active through running. Whatever your pace, activity level or experience our friendly and supportive running group will help you take the first steps in developing your activity levels, helping you feel healthier in body and mind. 

About our sessions

When: Wednesdays 6.30pm 

Where: Battle Baptist Church, Mount Street, Battle, TN33 0EG

Meet in the car park at the back of the church off Mount Joy.

Cost: FREE!

Including warm up and cool down, our training sessions last for about 45 minutes.  After each session we gather for a rewarding cuppa in the Church Hall.

If you are returning to running or new to running we recommend our Couch to 5k courses. Our training sessions are geared towards runners/joggers who can already run around 5k (however quickly or slowly!).  

Usually, our sessions are about working on drills to improve strength and endurance. We post the training session planned for each week in our Facebook Group.

You are welcome just to turn up on Wednesday evenings, but if you would like to know more or let us know you are coming, please email

Couch to 5k

If you are new to running, we regularly hold Couch to 5k courses. Couch to 5K is a running plan for absolute beginners that will help you gradually work up towards running 5km in just 9 weeks.

Please email: if you would like to join our next course or if you would like more information.

We do not charge for Couch to 5k or for our Wednesday sessions.

Park Runs

We often join Park Run either at Bedgebury or Hastings. You can find the dates of these by joining our Facebook group.
