Welcome to Crowborough Runners
Looking to start running? We are a friendly club that welcomes runners of all ages and abilities, from those just starting out on their running journey, including those following a couch-to-10k training programme, to more advanced athletes. Our regular club runners range from social runners, who just take pleasure in exercising and running with others, to competitive club runners with race specific goals.
We are fortunate in that we have use of a surfaced, three lane all-weather track, which is floodlit during the winter months, providing the opportunity for runners of all abilities to train in a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment all year round. Our guided training sessions are led by a dedicated team of volunteer coaches who are all England Athletics registered. We encourage anyone who is already a runner, or who has just become interested in running, to come along for a "taster" session before joining the Club. This can be by attending one or more of our weekly training sessions, or by joining us on one or more of our Club runs. Further details on how to join the Club can be found below.
All runners of all abilities are welcome to join us.
