You know that running is a great, low-cost way to improve your health and build your stamina
Ellesmere Port Running Club has been in existence since 1986. Formally known as Rivacre Runners and Joggers, the name was changed to reflect the fact that we are the only running club completely based in Ellesmere Port.
Currently we have over 120 members across all age groups and abilities.
We meet every Tuesday, Wednesday (beginners) and Thursday night at the Whitby Sports & Social Club at 6.30pm, the run starts at 7pm.
Initially, we only met on a Tuesday and Friday but we decided a couple of years ago, to start up a Wednesday Beginners night.
This has been highly successful and has resulted in a large increase in members over the past few years.
We compete in races both locally, nationally and internationally. As a club, we are members of the Border League which comprises 17 clubs on either side of the English/Welsh border. We also compete in the Liverpool and District Cross Country league.
For the past 10 years, we have organised a 5K race at Capenhurst. This has been made possible by the generous sponsorship of Urenco and the race has become an established one on the local circuit.
If you are interested in getting fit, losing weight or running generally, please get in touch.
