a community of cruelty-free runners of all abilities
Vegan Runners is a UK-wide athletics club full of beautiful, compassionate runners of all levels of ability. We promote a healthy, performance-enhancing, cruelty-free lifestyle to runners and encourage vegans to take up running. Vegan Runners UK is affiliated to England Athletics. Individual membership with England Athletics is optional and incurs an additional fee. Unfortunately, there is no mechanism for the club to also affiliate with Welsh Athletics or Scotland Athletics. The club is a non-profit-making company – the income we receive is reinvested in the club to benefit our members and support our goals of promoting a cruelty-free lifestyle to runners and encouraging vegans to take up running. We are also a thriving community which arranges local meetups for training, social activities, races and to support good causes. Whether you’re a vegan who wants to get active, a runner who wants to save the world or a vegan runner who hasn’t signed up yet, join us now and be awesome.
The fastest-growing athletics club in the UK
Join the Family
Most athletics clubs are sports teams whose members are connected through coincidental geographical proximity. Vegan Runners are a family who share a bond of love for one another, our fellow animals (including some humans) and our beautiful planet. We are the fastest-growing athletics club in the country with over 3,100 members (November, 2022).
RUN BY VEGAN RUNNERS FOR VEGAN RUNNERS
The club is run by Vegan Runners for Vegan Runners. We encourage all our members to contribute whatever they can so that our glorious club can continue to thrive. The creativity, love and hard work of our volunteers has made the club what it is today. Please contact Club’s Secretary via contact form if you would like to volunteer. Any help you can provide will be gratefully received whether you have any special skills or you would like to assist with events such as manning the Vegan Runners stalls or leading runs in your local area. The Vegan Runners UK committee is elected at the club’s Annual General Meeting which takes place in different parts of UK every 12 to 15 months. If you are interested in joining the committee, you will have the opportunity to put yourself or a clubmate forward. Vegan Runners are also crazy keen to spread the love and help the world know more about the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of a healthy, cruelty-free lifestyle. If you can help us to publicise our fantastic club and the work we do for our communities and animal rights, please contact our Press Secretary using the contact form below.
