Newmarket Joggers is 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.
Newmarket Joggers meet twice weekly at Newmarket Leisure Centre on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.20pmfor club runs at 6.30pm. We offer distance runs and technical track sessions with a level 4 UKA coach. More information on our training schedule can be found here: click here. New members please see below for information on joining the club.
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.
