Based at the Obelisk Centre near Kingsthorpe, 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.
We train as a group on Wednesday and Fridays, meeting time to 7:00pm for 7:15pm start. Club nights typically involve various distance routes between 4 and 15ks with fast and slower groups. We run interval sessions twice a month.
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.
