About our club
Our club is named after the number of miles in a marathon but please don’t let this put you off! Though some members do run marathons (and further…) many of us enjoy running shorter distances or just for the enjoyment and health benefits that running brings.
We aim to be a friendly and inclusive Club and welcome new Members of ALL running standards, fast or slow, beginner, returning or experienced runners.
Not sure if a Running Club is for you?
No problem! Just come along and try us out for a couple of sessions, if you like us join, if not at least you’ve had a couple of runs! We are happy for you to come and try a few sessions for free with absolutely no commitment.
If you are new to running or taking it up after a break, why not join us on Monday’s Beginners & Improvers Night and see how much more fun running with a group is – much better than slogging around on your own. More experienced or fitter Runners may want to try a Wednesday Night Session. Once you get the taste you’ll probably want to join up!
If possible, we recommend you come for the first time on a Monday night as on Mondays you will always be guaranteed a normal run. On Wednesdays we do a variety of activities – longer runs, track sessions, hill sessions and our monthly 3 mile “Club Handicap” race. If in doubt, email us at enquiries [ at ] 26point2.co [ dot ] uk with any questions.
It’s not expensive…
The annual membership is a very reasonable £15. See our Membership Details for more information. Optional club kit is available to purchase. All Members get discount at a number of local Running Shops. England Athletics membership is optional but encouraged.
We are keen to recruit new members of ALL levels and abilities, whether you are just starting on a keep fit program or you want to run a marathon. We currently have just around 180 members and always welcome more.
If you have questions that have not been answered here, please feel free to ask us more using our public forum.
We look forwards to running with you soon!
