Welcome !

Welcome to our mini slogger site and thank you for visiting . We are a relaxed & sociable bunch of novice runners in the main with one or two seasoned pros. We enjoy nothing more than pottering around our lovely hometown of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight on a run together. We also like to organise the odd running themed event to help raise money for local charities. Besides that we enjoy the occasional social meet ups. This is an Isle of Wight running group where the emphasis is on "more fun & less run ! “. 

We have no club, committee, membership or fees - we’d struggle to manage all that - so it’s just turn up and go. See more in slogger runs page

A bit about Ventnor...

So a bit about Ventnor. Undisputedly one of the islands gems - steeped in history, a warm & sunny microclimate, verdant & lush landscapes, steep hills, beaches and coves, landslips, a vintage vibe, excellent foodie options, boutique hotels, a vibrant arts / cultural scene so all you would want really - which is why it’s a popular tourist destination & a desirable place to live. Our runs take in the very best of Ventnor why not go the whole slogger hog and do all 4 in one week?

Come join us for a run !

We warmly welcome in visitors of all ages & abilities to join us on any of our runs - you can be assured one of us will welcome you in and introduce you to the group. You’d be accompanied in the run with the reassurance that “no slogger will get left behind!” . We sometimes convene for coffee or a pint after depending on the day. We are a small group of individuals - although we have a facebook membership of around 300, the number of active runners is far less !. We usually get a handful of sloggers turn up on one of our regular runs rain or shine, never a no show. Turn outs can be more plentiful for themed runs and other slogger specials like the 5K handicap pictured below - so well done sloggers !
