Joining our running club

Joining Skelmersdale Running Club can offer numerous benefits and advantages, whether you're a beginner or an experienced runner. Here are some reasons why joining our club can be a great idea:

1. Motivation and Accountability: We provide a supportive community that encourages you to stay committed to your running goals. Knowing that you have scheduled group runs and fellow members counting on you can motivate you to lace up your shoes even on days when you might not feel like running.

2. Structured Workouts: We offer organised training programs and structured workouts that are designed to help members improve their fitness and reach specific goals, such as completing a certain race distance or improving their speed.


3. Social Interaction: Running can be a solitary activity, but being part of our club gives you the chance to meet like-minded individuals who share your passion for running. It's an opportunity to make new friends and build lasting relationships.


4. Variety of Running Routes: We explore different routes and locations for group runs, helping you discover new paths, trails, and areas in your community that you might not have known about.

5. Advice and Support: Experienced runners in the club can offer valuable advice on training, pacing, gear, and nutrition. If you're new to running, you can benefit from the collective knowledge of more seasoned members.

6. Accountability in Races: We participate in local races together. Having a group of friends cheering you on and running alongside you can make race day a much more enjoyable experience.

7. Access to Coaches and Experts: We have certified England Athletic run leaders as well as experienced runners who provide guidance and expertise, helping you improve your running technique and performance.

8. Safety: Running in a group can enhance safety, especially when running in less-traveled areas or during early morning or evening hours. There's strength in numbers, and having others with you can help deter potential safety concerns.

9. Competition and Challenge: Running with others can push you to run faster and work harder than you might on your own. Friendly competition within the club can motivate you to improve your running abilities.

10. Camaraderie: The sense of belonging and shared experiences that come with being part of our club can boost your overall well-being and mental health.

11. Events and Activities: We organise social events and other activities related to running making your involvement in the club more multifaceted and enjoyable.

12. Inclusivity: We welcome runners of all levels, from beginners to seasoned runners. This inclusivity ensures that everyone can find their place and receive the support they need to succeed.


You can attend a few group runs to get a feel for

our club's culture and community before committing.
