To us running isn't an elitist sport, it's for everyone of all abilities, speeds and distances. If you want to run - you'll love it here!
Whatever your running ability come and join us. We cater for beginners through to ultra runners.
We all only live once (probably), so become the best runner you can be with us and have the time of your life with great people. Enjoy the joy of running with NRR!
We are based at the Obelisk Centre near Kingsthorpe 2 nights a week and at either Abington Park or the Racecourse on Mondays.
Northampton Road Runners has around 150 runners aged 18+ and of almost all abilities. EVERYONE is valued and welcomed. We do all we can to encourage our members to enjoy the running experience with all the benefits that feeling great brings, without strict coaching or performance targets.
We encourage anyone who wants to run to come along and join in. You don't have to be at your very best to visit us - just keen to run. You will receive a warm welcome and plenty of encouragement.
Members run road races, marathons, cross country, Random Distance races, fun events, fell running, Parkrun, and triathlons throughout the year and across the globe. Everyone supports everyone else - regardless of their speed.
We are an authorised England Athletics Runnning Club (registration number 2659143)
There is no need for your running to be a solitary experience. We are friendly bunch. Give it a go!
