Purbeck Runners are very keen to welcome new faces to our club.

We cater for a wide range of abilities from socially paced to speedy! However, we are currently unable to take beginner runners. There is a beginners running course that takes place 2-3 times a year that will get you running up to 5k. From there we could help get you up to 4 miles so that you are able to join one of our regular groups. If you would like more information on the beginner courses, or general help with getting started with your running please contact Paula Lawton-Archer at pllawtonarcher @

For runners that are able to already run 4 miles as a minimum we meet every Wednesday evening when there are a variety of different paced groups. You can see more information on the “About Us” page.

All of our group leaders are experienced runners and many have completed the England Athletics’ Leadership in Running Fitness qualification. Nobody ever gets left behind in our groups, and all are well looked after.

Please bring along a filled in Guest Form with you to give to the Run Group Leader.

If you are new to running, please feel free to get in touch via our contact page for further information.

We very much look forward to meeting you soon!
