Are you new to running? Or new to Nailsea? Or interesting in joining a running club for the first time? We would love to hear from and run with you.

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 regularly run courses for beginner adult runners, including those who may have enjoyed running or exercise ‘ages ago’ and want to focus on running again.



So, would you love to try running, but don’t know where to start? Then here is our next course.

We are starting a new Couch to 5k in January 2021. The details are on the website home page and on Facebook. The Couch to 5k programme is designed for novice runners. Over approximately 9 weeks you will gradually build up fitness and confidence with the aim of completing a 5k race.

Here are a couple of reviews from previous courses

“If somebody had told me last Christmas that by the end of April I’d be running 5k (non stop), I’d have laughed my socks off.  But it happened, thanks to loads of support, encouragement and advice from a couple of members of Nailsea Running Club.
And Nailsea Running Club C25K programme certainly proves that it doesn’t matter how fit you are, or how old you are, virtually anybody can run 5K. And it’s so much easier doing it with a group of likeminded and similar ability people than trying to do it on one’s own.
So if you’re not sure if running is for you, give it a go…….I’m sure you’ll surprise yourself and you certainly won’t regret it.” – Rob
