Achilles Running Club
The Achilles Running Club aims to enable people from all walks of life, including those with physical impairments, to enjoy the health giving benefits of walking and running in a supportive, social and encouraging environment. In so doing it hopes to promote personal achievement, to enhance self-esteem, and to lower barriers between people.
The club meets once a week and provides free guide runners to anyone with the kind of disability which makes this necessary. Membership is $10/year for students, which is negotiable for students with financial difficulties.
