Our club meets for a social run every Tuesday, and for a training run every Thursday. We also participate in cross-country and road races most weekends, and ad-hoc groups often get together during the week for various other runs together, such as long runs.
All of our activities are attended by members of all abilities.
Winter runs are on the road within Burton, starting from the Shobnall Leisure Complex reception.
Summer runs are off-road from various locations in the Burton area, usually starting and finishing at a pub.
High vis vests must be worn for all winter evening runs, and head torches where street lighting is poor. If any member requires a high vis vest, one can be ordered from our Club Kit page.

Cross Country League - Allestree Park
Approx 6 miles total, 2 laps. Muddy in parts, but extensive compacted limestone paths at end of lap. Off-road shoes preferable; spikes not ideal. Toilets next to the Hall. No showers.
Main entrance is off A6 (Duffield Road), just at the Northern boundary of the city. Use post code DE22 2EU. Car parking is very limited, and the city council has forbidden parking alongside the main entrance road. SHARE CARS. The main parking is in the wooded area, irregular in shape and not marked out – please park sensibly. There is a bit more parking around the hall, which is beyond the main carpark.
There is an alternative car park at the top end of the park, off Woodland Road, and another at the Evergreen Club on Cornhill (DE22 2FT). Runners from Derby please use these.
