How to Join

We have different paced groups and as long as you can run at least 3 miles at any pace you’ll be fine joining us!

Blackburn Road Runners is affiliated with England Athletics, a member of UKA (UK Athletics).  In order that a runner can train with an athletic club, and ultimately compete for them, they must be a Member of that club.

Non-members/prospective members are able to attend Club runs for a maximum of one month, following which an application for membership must be completed and subscriptions paid.  Before membership can be approved, prospective members must attend four consecutive Wednesday Club runs to become familiarised with the club and its members.

We understand it can be very daunting for some to take the initial plunge to join us so please contact our Club Membership Secretary, Kate Rippingale, who will be pleased to answer any queries you may have.

It’s ideal if you are training for an event such as the Great North Run or the London Marathon as we can provide all sorts of training advice.   If you just want to keep fit with other like minded people and get out on a Wednesday night…again we fit the bill!

Our Social members play an invaluable role within the club, supporting our runners at race events as well as marshalling.
