Person jogging at Dove Stone RSPB reserve


Fancy going for your weekly run in a nature-rich environment? Join the Rainham Harriers!

The Rainham Harriers running club

The Rainham Harriers running club offers an opportunity to get active outdoors and improve your fitness, whilst benefiting from the enjoyment of birdsong in a wildlife-abundant landscape.

We have a suggested donation of £1 per session – all your kind donations go towards saving nature!

Running from our nature reserve allows you to get more from your session than a long slog along a busy road. Your Run England licensed leader and volunteers will guide you on runs of varying distances to suit different abilities, whether you are starting out from scratch, or training for that next big race, we have a fun and welcoming environment to help you achieve your goals!

You never know – you may sign up for your next 5k or 10k representing the Rainham Harriers.

Active in Nature is a 2 year funded project in partnership with Sport England inspiring people to get active outside at two RSPB nature reserves; Rainham Marshes and Strumpshaw Fen. This project gives people a wonderful opportunity to get closer to nature in a new and exciting way on our reserve and fosters a healthy lifestyle for all ages and abilities.

Adventure with us at Rainham Marshes through cycling, running, bouldering, Nordic pole walking, and yoga or try out our trail activities!
