New to running, or have some questions about getting involved? Our FAQs should have an answer.

Can anyone join?

Yes, we're an all-inclusive club. Each session is run at your own pace. Our only ask is that you can run 5km.

Do I have to be a member in order to come along to a training session?

Not at all. We offer a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) option for just £2 per session.

We meet at 7.10pm at the cannon/war memorial in Ward Park for all training sessions.

We ask new attendees to come at 7.00pm and introduce themselves to the coaches.

Training lasts approximately an hour.

I am a member with another club, can I still train with WPR?

Of course! You can use the PAYG option or join as an affiliate member.
