We have a number of different training groups, running at different speeds designed to suit runners of all standards - click on the links below for contacts & more information. Routes tend to be undulating (this is Oldham after all!), usually off-road in & around Tandle Hill Country Park in the summer & on the roads when evenings are darker. 
11.00 - 12.00 MINS/MILE (approx 75 minute 10K pace ) - click here for details

6.30 - 7.30 MINS/MILE (approx 44 minute 10K pace) - click here for details
Runners aged 18 & over of any ability & experience are welcome to come along to give us a try. If you wish to speak to someone beforehand, please contact one of the people listed against these individual groups or someone on our Contacts/Officials page.
All of our training groups are led by volunteers - each of whom has plenty of running experience - with the emphasis on sociable runs rather than 'hard training'. We don't want things to be too regimented, but the safety of all runners is paramount: at least one person in each group should carry a mobile phone in case of emergencies, nobody will be left behind, routes will be chosen to avoid dangerous roads & it is the personal responsibility of EVERY runner to be visible to traffic, wearing reflective clothing especially on darker nights. Please also make sure that you wear appropriate footwear for off-road running when the evenings are lighter. Other than that, it's all about the pleasure of running regularly with like-minded people of a similar standard.
If you are completely new to running, the Royton Road Runners RunTogether group is a great place to start.
