Club Runs

We meet several times a week for organised runs and related activities. A number of different distances and paces are on offer from a speedy 6 miler to a more relaxed chatty 4 miler. Everyone is welcome, no matter what ability. We always ensure we have a run leader back marking the group who is happy to adapt to your pace!

Monday Milers - Meeting 7pm at Dunscar War Memorial (all year round)*
On Mondays we have a 4 or 6 mile road route available which we post in advance so you can turn up and run at your own pace. Although the group can get spread out, we always ensure we have a run leader allocated as backmarker who is happy to adapt their pace to the needs of the group so no-one is left behind!

Tuesday Trailers - Meeting 7pm at Turton Tower (April - September) and Bromley Cross Train Station (October-March)*
On Tuesdays we offer a 4 or 6 mile trail route. These routes can be harder to navigate so runner leaders tend to keep the group in close proximity and re-group at regular intervals. On Tuesdays we also have an additional 'chatty' paced group for those who want a steadier social pace. This often proves our most popular choice! Our meeting point changes part way through the year to allow us to explore more hidden trails during lighter evenings. Please check our Facebook page for posts about exact dates we change location as this can vary slightly year to year.

Wednesday Whizzers - This session is led by running coach Stephen Pearson who provides various running challenges tailored to your ability to improve your running.
The time and location can vary dependant upon what Stephen has planned. Check our Facebook group for Stephen's post with further details or speak to a run leader who will put you in touch.

Friday Feeling - Meeting 6am at Dunscar War Memorial (all year round)*
On Fridays we have a 4 mile route available to help get your day started on a high. As always nobody is left behind!

Sunday Scouts - These trail runs take place on the second Sunday of every month led by our qualified run leader and local explorer Graham King.
Meeting points and distances vary each month, providing the opportunity to explore new areas. Check our Facebook group for Grahams posts with details of the location and distance each month!


We use the RunTogether app/website as an online booking system for our runs. It's free to register and use and we use to ensure we have enough volunteers etc. So please do register and please do book yourself on the various runs we have. The earlier you book the better we can plan things, preferably at least 24 hours beforehand.
