Where we meet


Smithills Sports Centre


New to running, returning after an injury or returning to running, then the New Beginners Group is for you.


Each programme is designed around the needs and goals of the runners in that group, so it is unique and individualised.

The initial informal 3 week period gives an opportunity for us to get to know you and find out what you would like to get out of the group; following this the formal programme will hopefully take you to your destination, whether that be a race or to simply run a set distance without stopping.

You are more than welcome to join us each Monday at 7pm, we meet at Smithills School Sports Centre, Smithills Dean Rd, Bolton, we currently support the muster run group.


Smithills Sports Centre


If you run for three miles without stopping and want to progress to the next stage? Then our main groups are made especially for you. The people leading the sessions have lots of experience in different areas of running and wish to share their knowledge with you.


The sessions are held at 7pm at Smithills School Sports Hall, Smithills Dean Rd., Bolton, each Monday (except bank holidays) and the cost of each session is £1. 

Visit the home page or follow us on facebook where the sessions for each Monday evening will be posted.

On the first Monday of each month or in the case of a bank holiday, on the following Monday, the monthly club meeting takes place at 8.45pm at a local cricket club and is a great opportunity to socialise and meet other club members from the main group.
