Welcome to Perth Road Runners!
We pride ourselves on being a friendly running club and have proudly brought runners together in Perth for over 30 years. Our philosophy is to inspire and be inspired; all we ask is that you have a pair of running shoes and a sense of humour. We will take care of the rest.
We have a broad range of ages and abilities in our club.
We meet twice a week: always on Tuesdays – and alternating between Wednesdays and Thursdays:
- On Tuesdays (6:30pm), we meet at Bell’s Sports Centre (outside) for our traditional Club Run. We tend to run for around 1 hour at these sessions; the range can be anything from 4-5 miles up to (and very occasionally more than) 10 miles.
- Every other Wednesday (6:00pm), we have organised coaching sessions at the George Duncan Athletics Arena, North Muirton for speed sessions over varying distances. Newcomers need not be intimidated by the track! These sessions are every bit as useful and fun for the beginner as they are for the elite runner.
- On Thursdays (6:00 pm) of the other week (ie alternating weeks with the Wednesday sessions), and even in winter, we train in the Kinnoull and Deuchny Hill areas, these sessions being mainly hill and trail reps/intervals. The dates and details for these training evenings can be found – along with those for the races in our three Club Race Series and various Club Events (see their tabs above) – in our Events Calendar.
At our Tuesday sessions, we have a ‘Meet & Greet’ set-up where one of our members will welcome you to the club and run with you, introducing you to some of our members who would likely be running at the same pace as you. This is a great way to meet us and see what the club is about.
Before you take that step, we would like to invite you to one of our Tuesday sessions as a taster session and meet us all. These sessions are free; the only additional payments is a £2.30 per-person fee for the Wednesday track sessions (in some/many periods, there is, even then, no fee for our members).
Joining the club is easy. Click the link to Entry Central website, fill in your details online and pay the daftly reasonable £15.00 membership fee. As a member, you are entitled to other benefits too. We highly recommend that our members also join Scottish Athletics to (among other benefits) save money on race entry fees.
We look forward to running with you!
