How to Join


Burnden Road Runners is a warm & friendly club that caters for all runners whether you are a competitive runner, new to running, returning from injury, or simply trying to get active, we always welcome new members.

The prospect of joining a running club can be a daunting task but at Burnden all are welcome to come along & get involved no matter what ability of runner you are. Therefore we have the New Beginners Group to help ease in new members gradually.

Alternatively you can of course turn up to our 7pm Monday night training sessions at Smithills Sports Centre, Smithills Dean Rd., Bolton, we also train at Leverhulme track on a Wednesday evening and have a Sunday morning long run starting at various locations.


Whichever option suits you best if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact Club Chairman Andy Dunleavy for more information, Tel Email
