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.
