***Our Thursday runs and track sessions are currently suspended. However, our Tuesday 5K runs are happening again but with special arrangements in place – see our Book a run page for further details***
There are club runs twice a week:
- 5K – Tuesday at 6.30pm (we are currently running a trial second 5K run starting when the first run ends (at about 7.10pm). You are welcome to join either or double up and do both).
- 10k – Thursday at 6.30pm.
In association with Maximise Potential, we also offer a weekly track session at Timperley athletics track each Wednesday at 6.15pm.
For our club runs, we meet beforehand at around 6.20pm, usually in the bar at DW Fitness, Whitehall Road, Brooklands – M33 3NL. If driving, you can park in the DW Fitness car park. Please check our Facebook page on the day of the run to confirm the meeting place.
All our club runs are free (apart from the track session) and non-members are welcome to join us (if, after a month, you have enjoyed the experience and would like to continue to run with us, we ask that you become a member of the club). For details of age restrictions see our membership page. If you’d like to discuss with someone what it is like to run with us, then just contact us.
Our club runs are organised by one of our qualified run leaders. They will select the route for the evening (details are posted on our Facebook group page) and will make sure everyone is happy and knows where they are going before setting off. They will also run at the back of the pack to make sure no one gets lost or left behind.
No one is too slow (or too fast) to join our runs (on a Tuesday night we have runners finishing the 5km route anywhere between 20 minutes and 40 minutes). All we ask is that you can finish a 5km run. If you are brand new to running or returning after a long break you might want to consider joining our beginners’ group.
We have two visually impaired guide runners who are England Athletics trained. If you are visually impaired and are interested in joining us on our club runs, please just contact us.
