New members are guaranteed a warm welcome at Royton Road Runners!
We pride ourselves on being a friendly club with runners of all standards aged 18 & over, from first-timers through to serious competitors - why not come along & make new like-minded friends?

Elsewhere on this website you'll find details of our regular training sessions (on road, trail & track). You're welcome to come along & give us a try - if you'd like to speak to someone first, please visit the 'Contacts/Officials' page.

If you're not sure whether a running club is for you, please read this blog written by Dan Yarwood. If this doesn't convince you to give it a go, nothing will!

If you enjoy training with us, the next step is to become a member of the club - click the button below to submit an online membership form. Please pay your membership fee (see below) before/at the same time as submitting your membership form.

The Royton Road Runners year starts on 1st April. From January 1st 2021 we have a 'special offer' membership fee of £45.00 which will cover membership through to 31st March 2022 for anyone who has not previously been an England Athletics member. This includes membership of England Athletics for the same period (if you are or have been a member of England Athletics, the membership offer is different - please contact us for details).

Once you've submitted a membership form, the easiest way to pay is by online transfer (to Sort Code 30-96-26, Account No 01306698 - please put your name as the reference), or you can pay by cheque (payable to 'Royton Road Runners') to Jenny O'Callaghan/Diane Johnson or any member of the committee at Monday/Thursday club training nights.
