Welcome to Warrington Road Runners

Gill - Cross Country Captain Gill

Welcome to Warrington Road Runners, we are an England Athletics affiliated running club established in 1977. Our members are a mix of social and competitive runners with ages ranging from 18 to 70 something and of all abilities. More...

We hold our own club championship, compete in local road races, a cross country league in winter and our own handicap events. Throughout the year we have several social events and an annual weekend away each year. Members can gain age-related standards and we hold an annual Presentation Evening to celebrate everyone's achievements.

Training

We meet and train at Broomfield Leisure Center on Tuesday evenings at 7pm and Victoria Park running track on Thursday evenings. Tuesday evenings use routes based around Warrington of varying distances and are suited to all abilities. Thursday evenings are on the track.

Warrington 10K 2020 Cancelled

Unfortunately due to the current COVID 19 pandemic we have made the decision to cancel the event this year. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel that the health and wellbeing of our entrants, club members and local residents must come first. It has become clear that as the weeks go on, the pandemic is likely to still be limiting our activities into the summer and it is unlikely that we would be able to run our race in the usual format under these restrictions.

17/03/2020: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Following yesterday’s changes in guidance from government, and this morning’s 9:00am updated guidance from England Athletics, the committee and run leaders of the club have consulted on the issue of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Being mindful of our duty as a club to keep members safe whilst participating in our club activities, it has been decided to suspend all organised club activities.

From today there will be no Tuesday run from Broomfields and no Thursday run or track sessions from Victoria Park until further notice.

We will also be seeking advice on our position regarding the AGM (which was due to take place on April 6th) and membership renewals, as well as looking further forward to the 10k which is planned for June 25th.

An important part of the current advice is to keep exercising, and we encourage all members from the newest to the most experienced to continue their training, (unless advised otherwise by their doctor) and to continue to use the club Facebook and strava groups to share their running experiences during this unusual period. Those members who do not use Facebook or strava can keep up to date with what other members of the club are up to via the ‘News’ section of the website, or by contacting one of the committee using the usual email addresses.
