A friendly and sociable running clubbased in Preston and the South Ribble areas

Red Rose Road Runners are a friendly and sociable running club based in Preston and the South Ribble areas. As a club we can offer a relaxed environment enabling you to improve your running ability with a variety of different types of training and events. Although the word “road” appears in our name, we also participate in cross country, trail, off-road and fell running.

Groups runs take place in Preston on Tuesday, and Bamber Bridge on Thursday, while members often organise their own runs at weekends. During the summer, we also have a number of runs in the local countryside. You will be encouraged to run at your own pace due to our mixed range of abilities and experience.

Group support will keep you motivated and having people to run with will encourage you to get out of the door when you don’t feel like it. Running with like-minded people means that you are able to discuss injuries, targets, races, ambitions and other running issues. It also provides the bonus of being safer, particularly for female runners.

Come along and give us a try We are one of the biggest clubs in the area and we encourage potential members to come along for a few training sessions before signing up.
