About Us

We are affiliated to the Governing body for athletics in the United Kingdom, UK Athletics and meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights for training sessions from 18:00, with an aim to start running by 18:30. The club also hosts a Beginners session on a Wednesday evening (East End Pool, 18:30 – 19:30) and a session for Under-16’s, which takes place at Walker Activity Dome between 18:00 – 19:00 on Wednesday evenings.

The club has both male and female runners and welcome all abilities. New runners are always welcome. We currently have 5 different training groups; from fast paced runners to slower runners / beginners & those returning from injury. Whatever your ability, you will be welcomed and our experienced Coaches and Trainers will always look after you.

You can always come along to give it a try, in fact we recommend that you do this for several sessions before you make any decisions to join. Training sessions are free to try out so you have nothing to lose.
