Welcome to Barnes Fitness

Fun, friendly and well organised running and triathlon events.

WOODLEY 10km - New date CONFIRMED - Sunday 25 October IN REAL LIFE.


(Event will take place virtually if local/national COVID restrictions are enforced)

Organisers of the well established Dinton Pastures Summer SeriesWoodley 10km, and Wokingham 5km/10km to name a few!

Run by husband and wife team; Ellie Barnes & Ian Gosling - both enjoy taking part in running and multisport events locally and internationally.

 I cannot recommend their races highly enough. They’re relaxed, non-threatening fun events. Suitable for all abilities, from proper club runners right down to me.
