The Eccleshill “Road Runners” club is relatively young running club, having been founded just a couple of years ago, back in 2014. We are based in Eccleshill, Lancashire, in the Borough of Blackburn with Darwen. Club consists mainly of amateurs from in and around of Eccleshill, who get togehter a couple of times a week to chat, run and just to have an excuse to get out of the house.
Club currently has 12 members, but other than word of mouth, we haven’t really been advertising the group to anyone. Making this website is the first step in expanding our membership. There is no age limit on who can join our club, but keep in mind that if you are underage, we require a written permission from you parent, or a legal guardian.
We meet a couple of times a week, during the weekend definitely, because that’s when people get time off from work. Our routes take us in and around of Eccleshill, and the surrounding areas. So far we’ve been on a couple of organized racing events, like the Inflatable5k, but nothing that competitive really. We’re just a small group of countryside folks who like to get together, run and have fun. If you want to join us, send your request through our contact form and we’ll be more than happy to have you. See on the track. Cheers.
