I Can Run club
Running for women of all abilities
All abilities* 'Tuesday Tribe' run
I Can Run Club is a unique women only running group. We believe that all woman - regardless of their size, shape, ability or background should have the opportunity to run and progress with like-minded women.
We have beginners programmes in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Debenham, Suffolk, UK. and use our beautiful local parks and green spaces to meet. Our beginners have an exclusive run/walk 6 week programme to follow and a shiny medal to take home at the end! These sessions are suitable for absolute beginners, for those who haven't exercised for many years and for those who need a confidence boost to get out and exercise.
We are committed to making sure you have a safe, comfortable time with us during the six weeks of a beginners session too. We totally understand how hard it is to get out the front door sometimes and how easy it is to make excuses. We’ve all been there too.
Have you tried couch to 5k and given up? Have you looked at couch to 5k and thought it looked too much? Do you worry about activity after years of inactivity? Have you had a negative experience whist exercising? Do you think the front door is your biggest hurdle? Do you just want to get outside and move around? Come and join us!
We also have a women only tribe who run on a Tuesday evening in Ipswich. This group run is for those who have completed our beginners programme and those who can comfortably run or run/walk 5k.

Starting from 7th June, Ipswich, Chantry Park. Wednesdays at 7.30pm
At I Can Run club we offer a safe space for women to step into exercise and feel great. It's been our experience that sometimes women can feel shy and nervous about joining new groups or overwhelmed by the thought of a gym. We are women of all shapes, abilities and backgrounds. We just want to be a bit a fitter.
Unlike 'couch to 5k' this programme does not aim for non-stop running. The aim is for you to understand that walking is not a weakness during running distances, that exercising as a group can be great and that you CAN run without feeling completely exhausted.
We meet in a quiet area of a beautiful Ipswich park (details will be sent when you enquire) in the evenings for our run/walk beginners sessions. We believe that to run outside in all weathers is a beautiful thing and can help with the runners high- especially when we know we've done well despite the weather! I'm an Occupational Therapist and know the our environments can impact on our well being. Being outside can help wash away the stresses and strains of modern life.
It will also help you get used to running outdoors so you can go off and pound the streets when you like!

Every Tuesday 7.30pm, Ipswich, Westerfield Rd entrance to Christchurch Park.
*If you've completed our beginners sessions or you are already a confident runner then these sessions will help you build confidence, stamina and and great new habit. Every Tuesday we meet at the Westerfield road entrance of Christchurch Park to run a variety of routes. We may add in drills and hills for an extra work out too!
I'm keen to get women runners together. There's safety in numbers and I know that women find it hard to run outside on their own at night time. I've been there.
Come and find us on Facebook or fill in the enquiry form to find out more.
New dates soon.
The course will include different runs. challenges and drills to improve over-all fitness and your running abilities. Suitable for confident runners and those who have been to our beginners sessions. Non-stop and jeffing runners are equally welcome.
We embrace the method of running and walking at our beginners sessions and runners who run/walk are welcome at our Tuesday Tribe too. Olympian, marathoner and the founder of the run-walk-run method (www.jeffgalloway.com) is leading the revolution.
By incorporating planned walk breaks during your running you’re using different muscles which, in turn, prevents injury. The beauty of the run-walk-run (TM) method is that beginners, older people and heavier people can also achieve great things and experience those special hormones that result in a ‘runners high’. It results in masses of happy achievements and no injuries – what’s not to love?
