New Members

We always welcome runners and triathletes who would like to join our club!


Training night

The club's main training night is on Thursday. Anyone thinking about joining the club must initially come on a Thursday night. We meet at Wootton Community Centre (Curtlee Hill, Wootton Fields) at 7.15pm. We split into seven groups of various speeds and abilities. All groups start their training session off at 7.30pm and are usually back at the Community Centre about 8.45pm (depending on the session).

Details of the weekly training schedules can be found here, along with the group criteria. High viz is mandatory during the Winter months for all Thursday and Tuesday night sessions.

If you are new to running, see Beginners

In addition to the main Thursday night training sessions, we also organise Tuesday and Sunday sessions, further information on these sessions are available on the weekly Club members' email.
