Helsby Running Club

Join us

Try before you buy…

We know it’s a big step joining a running club — most people are worried everyone will be too fast, too serious or just not that friendly. But we’re not like that (our ethos). Please come down to a few of our regular Monday or Wednesday runs and make sure you fit in — we’re convinced you will!

We have a range of pace groups and nobody gets left behind. As a guideline, if you can run 3k or more without stopping, you should be fine. We’ll aim to get you up to a 5k distance initially and then up to the full distances of most of the club runs.

There’s no entry barrier to a Monday session: it’s an enclosed space so you can do as much or as little as you feel capable in a supportive environment. Let someone know you’re new, so we can keep an eye on you.
