A community of runners - open to all

About our group

We are a friendly and inclusive running group that meets for regular runs in the South Manchester area. Didsbury Runners is managed by volunteers and is completely not-for-profit. Our motivation is to spread the fun of running and support the running community in South Manchester.

To run with us on our regular Monday nights you must be a registered member. We admit new members when we feel that we have sufficient capacity to do so to ensure that we can provide safe and enjoyable runs for all of our members. To express interest in becoming a Didsbury Runner you can join our waiting list by booking onto the run named Didsbury Runners Membership Waiting List. Once we have the capacity to admit new members, runners on the waiting list will be given first access to the new slots.

We do also manage other ad-hoc running sessions which are open to the general public. These are listed in the Group Runs tab, please click on the blue button below.

If you have any general enquiries please contact [email protected]
