We are a friendly running club based in Birchwood in Warrington, Cheshire since 1983. We organise the long-established Birchwood 10k road race and several other races.

We have runners of all ability -  people who just run for fun, and people who compete at a professional level every week. We all share a common love of running.

So whether you're an established runner, new to running, or looking to improve your fitness, we'd love you to join us!
