A local running group that has transformed the lives of scores of women in the Welshpool area is creating more opportunities for others to take advantage.

The Dolly Mixtures has welcomed over 200 women to their courses over the past four years with many taking up organised exercise for the first time.

Such is the popularity, new opportunities are being launched today for more women from not just the Welshpool area to make some life changing decisions.

A new group starts Llandrinio starts today (Monday) for both beginners and established runners, while tomorrow a Daytime Dollies beginners course commences at the COWSHACC Welshpool from 9.30am.

“We have really enjoyed seeing the impact our get togethers are making on so many local women's lives and look forward to helping many more,” said Dollies founder Sharon Davies.

Meanwhile, a progressive group for eight-minute milers or faster are held on a Wednesday or Thursday evening at 6pm. Led by newly qualified leader Carrie Vaughan, this female only running group will push members to their limits.

For more information, contact Sharon on for details.
