'Beginners or Returners – Club Ready' Social Running Group

If you want to start afresh, or return to running after a break, then why not think about joining our ‘New FREE Running Group’.

If you were thinking about doing a 'Couch to 5k' or perhaps joining a social 'Run Walk group', we can offer you both in one FREE 10 Week Social Running Course.  

We are calling it ‘Beginners or Returners’ and we intend to offer (subject to demand) these courses in March, June and September. Each course is 10 weeks in duration, meeting every Wednesday at 6.30pm until 7.30pm in the car park by the Peppermill Pub. There is no charge for the 10 weeks course, so why not come and join us?

NOTE: Minimum age for participation is 18 on the date the course starts.

Don't worry if you think you can’t run, we will help you on your journey to fitness. You won't be thrown in the deep end with the main club, this is a low-key group that is aimed at getting you into, or back into running.


Assuming you enjoy the experience of running with us, we would before the 10-week course finishes, invite you to join the main club of ‘Daventry Road Runners’, this will only cost you £15.00 per year (or £25 included affiliation to England Athletics). We are a friendly all-inclusive group, so what have you got to lose?

If you want to join our next course, please email us at​ clubready.drr@gmail.com

The next course will start on 2nd June 2021 at 6.30pm sharp. Number of places is limited to 10 runners only, so please register your interest early to avoid missing out.

Take the next step to joining Daventry Road Runners

Now you can run 5k comfortably, you are more than ready to make the step up and join Daventry Road Runners. By becoming a member of the club you will be able to take part in our twice weekly training sessions, running local routes, and, if you want, represent the club at various races that our other members already enjoy. We have a pretty snazzy new club kit available to purchase and regularly hold team events and social activities.

The first step is to book on to one of our club sessions. You can do this by registering on our booking app ClubPal. We will make sure you are well looked after and that someone will run with you during that evening's run.


If you are unsure, perhaps you feel it’s a big jump, or maybe you're nervous about running with new people, then don't be. We are a very friendly, supportive, all-inclusive bunch and love to welcome new runners. Come along and have some fun.

If you would like any more information, please speak to any of the run leaders at our club sessions or feel free to contact us here and we will give you all the information you need.
