Baxenden Bugs is a local community running group, based at Haworth Art Gallery, Baxenden, Lancashire.
We are an amazing and friendly group who try to cater for anyone who wants to run from absolute beginners to those now training for half and full marathons. Our aim is to support everybody and make running fun.
You're in good hands. The Run Leaders are Qualified UK Athletics Leaders in Running Fitness (LIRF) and are DBS checked.
Why not come along and join us? Details of the weekly sessions are located on the Runs page, but if you are still unsure, please contact one of the Leaders who will provide more information about the groups they lead.
Please can we ask that you register with RunTogether before you attend the first session. You can do this quickly using your Facebook, Twitter or Google account.
We ask that everyone in the Baxenden Bugs group signs up using the process below as this helps us ensure we know who is running with us in case of any accidents or emergencies.
This also adds your details to the groups contact list so that the Leaders can keep in touch in the event of any changes or cancellations due to weather etc.

Signing up for the C25K Group
If you are joining us for the C25K Group, we ask that you also sign up to each of the scheduled runs that you are attending as this will help us estimate how many leaders and volunteers we will need for the sessions.

There are 2 runs you can sign up to each week on Monday and Thursdays. There will also be an additional run over the weekend and this will be confirmed weekly by your leader.
