Members of all abilities welcome


Tyntesfield 10k 2020

Nailsea Running Club regret to announce this year’s Tyntesfield 10k race has been cancelled. We know that this will be disappointing to a lot of people particularly as it is the second year that we have not be able to host it. It is doubly disappointing as members of the club and the NT have spent a lot of effort negotiating the details of this year’s event. But in these times of extreme uncertainty we feel that trying to rearrange it this year would be difficult. It’s uncertain when the current restrictions will be lifted and likely by then we’ll be running up against the shorter evenings in the autumn. So near yet so far – hope to see everyone at the 2021 event. Meanwhile stay safe and stay well.


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
