Joggers at Carver Barracks, July 2023

We are an England Athletics affiliated running club in Newmarket, Suffolk that caters for a wide range of ages and abilities.  We offer a variety of training sessions, both track- and road-based, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.30pm offering a wide variety of distance and effort sessions to maximize your training potential – whatever your goals or reasons for running.

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.

New Members

We welcome people to come along to one or two training sessions before committing to membership of the Club. Please email membership@newmarketjoggers.co.uk to arrange this.  We ask that prospective members please do not turn up speculatively to a training session without contacting us first.

Our training nights include several ability groups but are not generally suitable for complete beginners. There are a number of “couch to 5k” programmes available for those looking to get started on their running journey and some of the local coaches offer beginners’ courses from time to time. We would be happy to provide advice and guidance to anybody who is unsure where to start.
