Details of how to try the Club & Join please CLICK HERE.


On Wednesday evenings we meet at The Centre, Swanage at 7pm with Annoucements & Warm up at 7.10pm and ready to run at 7.20pm.


We have a number of different groups available to suit all abilities.
You are free to dip in and out of the groups as necessary, for example if you are recovering from a race or perhaps injury you may need to drop down from your usual group for an easier run.
If it is your first time at the club, and you are unsure which group to run in I would recommend that you start in a group that you could comfortably run in and work your way up.
If you are in any doubt or need more information then please come and speak to me and I will assist you with finding the right group.
Please allow plenty of time for this if it’s your first time.

Below are more details about the available groups:

Beginners Group

This group is put together as and when needed and run by volunteers within the club on a rota basis. The group consists of a leader and backmarker each week – so nobody needs to worry about getting left behind.

Social Group – Currently led by Anita

This group is ideal for those wanting a ‘no pressure’ run or perhaps returning from injury. Enjoyment is the main focus here. The group can run any pace between 10.5 and 13 minutes per mile, depending on the needs of the group on any particular week.

Intermediate 65  (approx 65min 10k pace)- currently led by Kayleigh

This is the next group up from the social group. Training runs at between 10/10:30 mpm. Regrouping and looping back are regularly used and on occasions elements of training are incorporated.

Intermediate 55  (approx 55 min 10k pace) – Currently led by Tish

Intermediate 45 (approx 10k pace 45/50 min) – Currently led by Simon
