We love to run

Despite our name, not all of our members actually run marathons. We simply love running.

WAMC membership is open to anyone who enjoys running; from the beginner to the elite, from the competitive to the casual, from the young to the young at heart and for friends and families.

If you love running too, check out the many benefits of a WAMC membership and come run with us.

Lend a hand

We're run by volunteers.

We're a not-for-profit organisation, so we rely on our members to volunteer at events. Every event we hold needs volunteers to make sure everyone has a safe, enjoyable run.
