About the club

We are a friendly club based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

Our members come from all over the county with a wide and diverse background and as a result we have a running group that will suit almost anyone - from our fastest 'elite' runners who continually build bigger trophy cabinets, to our successful beginners groups. We also have an active junior section.

No matter what your aims or goals are, whether it is for keeping fit, losing weight, joining in our social groups or running to be competitive, we can help! Training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6.30 at Wrenn School, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 2JJ.

Our Junior section meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.30 also at Wrenn School.

We invite anyone to come and join us for 4 free sessions to see if you like it before we ask you to join the club. Tuesday sessions are generally a long run night from anything between 3 and 10 miles depending on group abilities and Thursday nights sessions are generally aimed at speed/strength work.

History

The club was originally formed in 1992 by a group of runners to train for the London Marathon and many of those runners are still with us today. The club joined with the Old Grammarians in 1997 and has been growing ever since!

As well as just running the club has diversified, with members trying their hands at Adventure Racing, Triathlons, Multi day events, Ultra marathons and any other crazy challenge they can come across!

We like to ensure that Wellingborough & District have a large attendance at nearly all the local (and some not so local!!!) events and races. Since 1996 the club has also been apart part of the Three Counties Cross Country league, which is held each year over the winter months.

The saying goes ... Work hard, play hard! and the social side of the club more than reflects this! With annual trips to our twinned club in Krov, Germany for the midnight run on the Mossel, Adventure weekends to Longtown (South Wales) as well as summer BBQ's and all year nights out!
