Join us

Lingfield Running Club is open to all adult members of the community, from those who just want to run for pleasure and to keep fit, to runners who are competitive and want to race.

No need to book in, no need to tell us beforehand, no need to worry or be nervous! If you are nervous, after your first session with us you’ll realise you didn’t need to be!

Our regular runs start promptly at 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursday and at 10 am on most Saturdays, so if you’re a newcomer, please come along a few minutes early and take the opportunity to chat with a few of our existing members. This will allow us to best match you with a group of similar pace and ability.

After a number of no obligation trial runs we hope you will know that running is for you and that Lingfield Running Club is the club you want to do it with!

Am I good enough?

Provided you are medically fit – if in any doubt, consult your doctor – you are good enough to start running.

Every runner was once a beginner. As a total novice you may have a good number of concerns: I don’t look/feel like a runner; where do I begin; how far and fast should I run; have I got the right shoes/clothing; should I join a club/gym etc.

Don’t be daunted by joining a running club. Running clubs are typically full of members with a wide range of experiences and abilities. Whatever your ability or standard of fitness there will doubtless be someone of a similar standard to you. Running in a group, such as a club, allows you to benefit from the experience and motivation of others.

What to wear

Wear something comfortable to run in and make sure it’s reflective if you come for a night run in the winter. We do have hi-viz reflective tabards to lend you if required.

When should I turn up?

Come along to one of our regular runs, or contact a committee member direct.
