Whether you are running just to get fit, training for a marathon, or pushing to become an elite runner, Northampton Road Runners could be for you.
Based at the Obelisk Centre near Kingsthorpe, Northampton Road Runners is a friendly informal club with around 150 runners of all ages and abilities. 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.
We are an authorised England Athletics Runnning Club (registration number 2659143)
