The Spirit of Monmouth Running Club was founded by Marketing Consultant, Mark Harrison, and Estate Agent, Sian Stroud. The two passionate runners believed that Monmouth was the ideal place to form a club, with the undulating routes of the Wye Valley and the strong community ethos within the town.

In July 2008, they approached the Monmouth School Sports Club as a premises and were met with support and enthusiasm.

The initial turn-out was an impressive 40 runners and over the years the club has gone from strength to strength, with more than 100 members today. Spirit of Monmouth Running Club endeavours to live up to its name and embody the spirit of Monmouth town through an encouraging and supportive environment.

We are an all-inclusive group who train, compete and socialise together on a regular basis, and welcome new members every week.
