Wesham Road Runners

As an England and Northern Athletics affiliated club, we compete in road running, trail running, fell running, and cross country. This also allows the club to partake in the local interclub competition, competing against other running clubs in the Fylde and Preston area.

The club meet on a Monday evening at 6:45pm, with runners heading out over range of distances and speeds. We also meet on a Wednesday evening at 7pm for a structured session. These sessions differ each week and are taken by fully qualified coaches / run leaders. We are based at Kirkham and Wesham Cricket Club.

Wesham Road Runners was formed in 1985 starting off with 30 members. As of today, we are a club of around 160 runners, plus a number of social, life and honorary members

We are always welcoming new members, and offer a free trial in which you can enjoy a social run on a Monday or Wednesday. If you would like to Join the club, then please use Join Us link below.
