About us

Running hasn’t always been part of our lives. In fact, there was a time where running was something to fear and to avoid at all costs.


We are Kate and Emily and we both came to find running through The Race for Life event (read more about that on our blog). Running really has given us both so much more than we ever thought it could.

When we first set out on our running journey, we realised that the groups and clubs local to us in Kettering were not only a step too far fitness wise but we also struggled to find a group that ran late enough for our husbands to walk through the door to take over the child wrangling after a long day at work. We knew there must be people like us pounding the streets solo through the winter and we really wanted to find them!

Eventually after a year of searching for a running group for people like us, we decided to set up our own. SheCan…Run was born.

We’ve gone from strength to strength, with successful beginners courses  and  half marathon courses helping ladies to find confidence and fitness through running.  We’re a friendly group with a range of abilities with the emphasis on running for fun rather than for speed. We strongly feel that camaraderie and team spirit are  the foundation of what makes SheCan… a success and pride ourselves on offering a friendly welcome to anyone who wants to join us.

SheCan…Run Kettering Ladies is our affiliated ladies only running club. We Set up Kettering Ladies so we could offer a more competitive ‘arm’ to SheCan… .Kettering Ladies is an optional addition to your SheCan…Run course/block and is open to any lady, local to Kettering or not, whether you have joined us on a course or not. More information can be found here.

And now we’re very excited to introduce SheCan…WoW – our collection of must have Workout Wear. Bright and funky prints as well as tried and tested kit that have become essential parts to our running wardrobe. We’re always on the look out for more kit that fits our fussy brief (quirky, comfortable, hard wearing, functional, well priced…) and SheCan…WoW is a way of us sharing our finds with you.
