Welcome to our running group

About our group

We are a sociable running group based in the centre of Manchester, meeting on a Wednesday night at The Wharf pub in Castlefield at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm run. There's a 5k, 7k, 8K or 10K option and we head to the pub for a pint and chat afterwards. We also run at weekends and have regular social events. Our whole ethos is about getting everyone together to meet new people, have fun and get fit. We don't believe people should have to pay for this, so we do it all for FREE. All abilities are welcome.

We are an English Athletics affiliated club, allowing us to offer lots of benefits to our runners including a safe and secure environment to run in.
