Welcome to Rushmere Community Runners

About our group

We are a friendly running community that meets twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We welcome all abilities and ages to our sessions, and nobody gets left behind.

Tuesday nights are when we have our technical sessions including sprints, hills and intervals. This is also the night we run our successful OnetoRun programme, aimed at begineers, those recovering from injury or runners looking for focused session to improve their technique. These sessions take place, not only at the Sports Centre, but also out on local roads. Between Autumn and Spring, during the darker evenings, we also have the use of an floodlit Astro pitch, taking the place of the grass field.

Thursday nights are for our mixed paced social road run groups. From beginners to experienced distance runners, there will be a group you can join. 

Each session begins at 6:30pm until 7:30pm, and all start at Ipswich School Sports Centre in Rushmere, near Ipswich. 

We have recently introduced an annual membership fee of £25, with all of our weekly sessions currently provided free of charge. These sessions have proved successful, with goals acheived and new friendships made

We look forward to seeing you
