Members of all abilities welcome


“Unlocking the Club”

As the UK moves towards unlocking from the Covid restrictions the club is looking forward to starting to function again.  However of course there is considerable uncertainty about the unlock date. All updates about the restarting of the club will be posted on the Nailsea Running Club group on Facebook.  The Facebook group is “public” to view but you will need to register with admin to be able to post on it.



Whilst the information below and on following pages on the website remain the aspirations for the club and show how we would normally operate, the arrangements set out are obviously on hold for the time being.  


We are a friendly and sociable club based at Nailsea & Backwell Rugby Club. We are very proud of our members who range from adults who have started running for the first time to ultra-marathon competitors. Since our foundation in 1986, our club catchphrase has been ‘leaving no runner behind’.

We meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm in the lobby or outside the front door of Nailsea & Backwell Rugby Club.


We offer

–          twice weekly runs of different distances and paces

–          weekly structured training sessions all year round

–          during the lighter evenings we also offer popular off road runs around the glorious North Somerset countryside, including an annual bluebell woods run

–          beginner courses for adults (find out more here)

–          Sunday runs and other ad hoc runs for all levels via our facebook page

–          a friendly league where Nailsea Running Club (NRC members) compete against each other in a series of local races

–          regular social events, including an Awards Night and Christmas party

–          we also organise 3 races every year which NRC members marshal, in order to support running in the wider community (find out more here)


We are lucky to have a base for the club at Nailsea & Backwell Rugby Club. This means we can offer all our members

–          free parking

–          changing and shower facilities

–          a bar where members regularly meet after runs


If you are interested in joining we would love to hear from you and run with you. You are very welcome to just turn up to one of our weekly runs and introduce yourself. Or contact us here if you want to let us know you are coming or have any questions.
