We are a friendly, non elitist running club that places great emphasis on encouraging beginners, while also catering for improvers and experienced runners.
This is achieved by offering an extensive range of weekly training to suit all
So whether you are a beginner inspired by watching the London Marathon, bored of running alone, or coming back from injury, experienced and looking for structured training, – then Astley & Tyldesley Roadrunners is the club for you.
All of our training nights meet either at the Miners Welfare Institute, Leigh Sports Village, or the big car park opposite Atherton train station.
