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

Red Rose Road Runners is a friendly and sociable running club based in Preston and the South Ribble areas. The club offers 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. We are seeking to increase the range of activities on offer.

Groups runs take place at various locations in and around Preston on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 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 to accommodate 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.

Red Rose 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.
