How to join

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!

We meet every Wednesday evening at Beach Gardens for announcements and a massed warm-up. See the Wednesday evening groups page for more info.

On arrival please ask for Paula Lawton-Archer (Seniors’ Coach) who will point you to the right group. 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 Paula.

If you are new to running, please feel free to contact Paula for advice on how  to get you started. You are most welcome to email via the contact us link on our website.

We very much look forward to meeting you soon!

Try before you buy! You are welcome to come and try the club three times before we ask you to join – if you’d like to try the club first please print and bring our guest form  to any club run
