A running club in Newmarket, Suffolk that caters for a wide range of abilities. In normal circumstances, we offer a variety of training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.30pm and have a track training option on Saturday mornings. Training sessions are suspended when Tier 4/lockdown restrictions apply. When Tier 1-3 restrictions apply, training sessions are offered within Run Groups of 6-12 runners, dependent on location, in a Covid-secure environment.
We are an established friendly club offering encouragement, advice and support to runners of all levels and abilities. Whether you are looking to improve your running, run as a group or join a club that competes in local, regional and national competitions… Everyone is welcome.
We welcome people to come along to a training session before joining the Club. We have several ability groups on a training night but they are not suitable for complete beginners. We run a great beginners’ course every January to help people start on their running journey, or we can offer advice on how to get started, so hopefully in time you may be able to join us.
If you consider you are not a beginner, please indicate below how best sums up your running ability before attending a session. We will then be in touch to advise which session and what group might be the best one to try. We kindly ask that you do not turn up without completing this and having a conversation with us first.
