We are a friendly club based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. No matter what your aims or goals are, whether it is for keeping fit, losing weight, joining in our social groups or running to be competitive, we can help! Training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6.30 at Wellingborough School, Irthlingborough road, Wellingborough, NN8 2BX.

BBQ run marshals

Calling all those marshaling on Thursday for the pre-Welly 5, please make sure you are there just before 6.30pm on Thursday evening so that Jon and Natasha can designate marshaling points and a water stop for club runners. Please bring your hi viz and don't forget to bring your encouraging voices!  If there are a few that have entered the race that haven't been selected for the team and you would like to help marshal please let Natasha know ASAP.

Pre Welly 5 BBQ

For those that have not attended previously, every year the club arranges a 5 mile timed 'race' where all members and families are welcome to enjoy the Welly 5 mile route before BBQs are lit and burgers and beer enjoyed back at the sports ground.  The teams chosen by Natasha and Jon for the actual Welly 5 race will be marshaling this BBQ run.

This year's Pre Welly 5 BBQ will be held on Thursday 24th July at 7pm at The Old Grammarians, Wellingborough.  Please arrive from 6:30pm as it is tradition to take a club photo of all members with the banner before the run begins.  For all club members intending on running the event, please wear club vests and hi vis tabards for the run itself.

Please bring food for the BBQ and some money to spend at the bar.

As per previous years, Northants Road Runners are also invited to the evening.

Rounders, not running

On Thursday 26th June come and join us at Irchester Country Park for a game of rounders!

Once a year, we are unable to use the school to run from due to the annual prize giving evening.  The club tradition is that we meet at Irchester Country Park instead and enjoy a club game of rounders! It's always a great laugh (even in the rain last year!) and we usually end up in the pub, although if the weather is good, we could take drinks with us...

It doesn't matter if you think you're rubbish at rounders, haven't played since school, or don't want to break a nail!  So please come along and give it a go!


Spring marathon photo

On Thursday evening at 6:15 we will be taking a picture of all runners that have run a Spring marathon or ultra event to date.

Please come along slightly early to the school, wearing either the club vest or hoodie and of course your medal!
