The Royton Road Runners RunTogether group meets at Royton Cricket Club on Tuesday evenings at 6pm.
The sessions last for 1 hour & are designed to help over-18s to achieve their goal...whether that is to get fit, lose weight, meet new friends, take part in a race or just to get off the couch!
We believe that running/jogging is for everyone & is most fun when shared with others. We can help if you’re a beginner or if you’ve not run for a while & want a gentle introduction. There is no minimum standard or level of experience. It’s fine to walk a bit, jog a bit, walk a bit more.
The aim is to complete the course in 12 weeks via a training programme which, in addition to a weekly group run, offers advice on safety, clothing & footwear, warming-up & warming-down, stretching...plus a bit of homework.
Group leaders are fully qualified & insured by England Athletics.
The plan is to conclude each programme with a 5K timed run at Oldham parkrun. You'll then have the opportunity to continue your running journey by becoming a member of Royton Road Runners.
As the name suggests, it’s about helping you to get started and/or to improve – it really is about lacing up your trainers & taking part!
