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 Cricket Pavilion, Ward Park (Gransha Road side).

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.
