Our group runs

Welcome to Chorley Runners.

The groups run leaders held a meeting on 22nd July to discuss the latest guidance from England Athletics. 

We have collectively agreed to continue the suspension of group sessions for the safety of everyone, leaders, runners and members of the public. 

Full details are given in the latest news article on this site.

We are hopeful to be able to restart group running sessions soon.

Currently, as leaders, we do not feel it is sensible to arrange for small groups of 6  for the health & safety of our runners, leaders or the general public who the groups will pass on their runs. 

Once we can meet in larger groups, we will restart group sessions. Hopefully, that is not too far away :) In the meantime, please stay safe, fit and healthy.

We have different running sessions for runners of all abilities. Full descriptions of the runs are under the Session Info tab and an overview of when the runs are held is below.

If you are a complete beginner,  we now offer a midweek daytime beginner running course.  If you cannot attend during the day, then check out the Chorley Couch to 5 K program, check their Facebook page for start dates.

You can run with any group, at any time, signing up for a session does not commit you to turn up but gives the run leaders an idea of how many people may turn up.  Different run leaders run different sessions. The run distances do vary so check the Facebook groups for the latest details. The upcoming runs sessions are listed at the bottom of this page.

We welcome anyone onto our sessions, we always loop at regular intervals to ensure no one is ever left behind and to be as inclusive as possible. Some people continue running back to the rear marker, some stop and chat - your choice. 


The group often arranges optional social evenings out, all are welcome to come along.
