What sort of running club are you?
We are a club that caters for those who wish to run for fun and those wishing to improve and compete in races.
Where and at what time do you meet?
We meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening at the Southbank Club on Dean Lane, BS3 1DB. (map) at 6.15 pm for a 6.30 pm start.
What do I have to wear?
From October onwards until Spring it is mandatory for all runners to wear items of hi-viz. The rule will be removed in spring when the clocks go forward. We will have some spare items of hi-viz clothing for new members to use during sessions.
Is there anywhere to put my bicycle?
There is no specific bicycle locking facility at the Southbank. We recommend you do not lock your bicycle to the railings outside due to a recent spate of thefts.
How much is it to join?
It's free to join, but there is a per run charge of 50p in order to cover the cost of using the facilities at the Southbank Club.
Is there anywhere to store my gear while we are out running?
During gathering time at The Southbank Club (6.00 - 6.15) space is available to store items, suitable for warm tops and bags etc. It is not secure, insured or guaranteed and we do not recommend storing items of high value like computers or expensive phones.
Does everyone run in races?
No, some of us just run for fun and to keep fit but a few of us, of varying abilities do like to enter races.
Are there any social events?
We're a lively club and organise various socials and there are always a number of us having a post run drink on a Tuesday or Thursday at the Southbank Club. Have a look at the Events Diary section of this website, or visit our Facebook page for more info on what's going on.
