About Us

Warrington Road Runners Group
WRR is an England Athletics affiliated running club established in 1977. We train and run over road, trail, fell and cross country.

Our members are a mix of social and competitive runners with ages ranging from 20 to 60 something, roughly one third women. We hold our own club championship and compete in local road/trail races year all year round as well as our own handicap events. In winter we compete in the North West Sunday Cross Country League.

We have several social events throughout the year and a annual presentation of club awards and achievements.

We meet regularly to run on the footpaths and roads of South Warrington with summer routes including some scenic runs through woodland, fields and canal paths. Our Tuesday run is up to ten miles with several cut-offs for shorter runs. How far you run depends on you but we try to match up “new” runners with “old hands” to introduce you to the routes and to make sure you don't get lost. On Thursday nights we train at Victoria Park on the running track in a coach led session. The training link will provide more details.

Members can also gain age-related standards these take into account gender and age and are a fairer indication of achievement.
