Staffordshire Moorlands AC have a really friendly, supportive and successful ladies section.
I have been manager of the ladies for over seven years now and my ideal is that everyone who wants to run or race regardless of ability gets to run.  We encourage new runners and welcome everyone regardless of whether you want to run to race or run to get fit.
If you are looking for support or advice on how to get going we offer a ladies only session on a Monday night at Birchall track or an adults session on a Tuesday at 6pm also at Birchall track. Here you will meet others of like mind and get all the encouragement you need to become a better runner. Please see the training section on website for more session details.
If you already run and want to join a club and become part of a team we have one of the most successful ladies teams in the area, we have won individual and team County Medals, Midland Medals and British Masters Medals and I try to get teams out at all relays and team events on road, cross country, trail and fell races.  If you see a team event you would like us to enter I am always open to new races and will support anyone with new ideas.
Over the last year we have had an influx of new ladies who have all embraced the training and most of them have had ago at racing and have become part of our ever growing team.
If you would like more information on what we can offer you then please contact me via the ladies email link This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Happy Running :)
