However if you are an existing runner of any level you might like to consider just coming along and giving the club a try anyway; or at least get in touch and discuss.

As on any of our club runs we operate on the basis that absolutely “nobody gets left behind”! How do we do that? Well come along and find out. And, the runs are not competitive.

Although the winter may not seem like the best time to start running, it has to be said that running really gets the internal heating system working well even on a cold wet evening. After the run you are welcome to join other runners in the bar; maybe the icing on the cake.

These club runs will be led by experienced club members and start at 7pm on Tuesdays at the Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club.

So, just turn up and give it a try on any Tuesday or call / email the chairman for more information:
