New Members

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

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).

High viz is mandatory during the Winter months for all Thursday and Tuesday night sessions.

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.

Would you like to join us?

With Running Experience – If you have some experience of running (e.g. you are able to run continuously for 45/55 minutes at 11/12 minutes per mile). On your first session, please complete and bring a New Runners’ Induction Form with you (this form is not a membership form). As a Club we offer up to 3 free sessions to evaluate whether the Club is right for you.

You can join us, online, above. If you do not join after your initial 3 sessions you will not be able to continue to train with us, race as an affiliated runner or be covered by the Club’s insurance.

New or returning runner?

Maybe you’ve never run before and want to get fit? Have you been injured and want to regain your running fitness? If so, we’d recommend local Grange Park running group, Running for Beginners. It’s free to join and you’ll get plenty of support and encouragement.

The group was set up by WRR member, Rob Burgess, who is also a qualified England Athletics level 2 endurance running coach. As we move out of lockdown, Rob will be leading regular 8 week couch to 5k group training programmes – all free to join.

You can find out more about this on Facebook, click here or search for Running for Beginners.

Once you can run 5k, you’ll be able to train with us. You can try a Thursday night tester session to make sure we’re the right club for you.
