Welcome to Chorley Runners.


Our run sessions are now available for booking. we will be running in pods of 6 including a leader for health and safety reasons. 

At present, we are only holding sessions on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.  We are looking at additional sessions and will announce them once we have decided on which sessions we can restart.

#MyRunMyPace #StaySafe #KeepRunning

As you will all appreciate, we have worked hard so that we can reopen as a group. We have now developed a full Covid-19 policy and believe we have made every effort to define our COVID-19 secure environment to allow us to run safe running sessions again, with assistance from our friends at Lions Running Community. This policy and associated risk assessment forms have been uploaded to the files section of our Facebook groups to make it available to everyone in the group.

Full details are in our latest news item - please take the time to read it.

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.
