We are a friendly, non elitist running club established January 2001 that places great emphasis on encouraging beginners, while also helping to develop improvers and experienced runners.

We have an extensive range of weekly training to suit all and also compete in several local leagues. 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, or looking for the next step into tri, ultras or fell running, then Astley & Tyldesley Road Runners is the club for you.

We take part in the local leagues in road, fell, cross country and ultras, regularly winning individual and team prizes. Plus our members have a wealth of knowledge and experience, with Great Britain Tri and Duathlon age-groupers, Bob Graham Round veterans, marathon fans and Iron Man enthusiasts in our ranks.

Our training nights meet either at the Gin Pit Miners Welfare Club , Leigh Sports Village, the big car park opposite Atherton train station during the winter months or Bee Fold Lane, Atherton in the summer. See our training webpage for more details.

Come and give us a try, you won’t regret it!
