From A Mile in Her Shoes:

A Mile in Her Shoes is a volunteer-led charity that helps women find their feet through running.

Here at A Mile in Her Shoes, we encourage women who are at risk of homelessness or affected by related issues to try running as a way of exercising, socialising, lifting confidence and boosting self-esteem.

We work to identify and remove any barriers to running, enabling our participants to access the same mental, physical, health and social benefits from running as any other woman.

We create, lead and support running fitness groups through a volunteer-led programme. Sessions are provided by trained and insured female volunteers who are qualified to lead mixed ability groups.
