Marlborough Running Club is based in the picturesque town of Marlborough, Wiltshire, set in the heart of the beautiful North Wessex Downs. Although in the main we are a club of longer distance runners (from 5k to 100k+), our interests cover road and trail running, triathlons, orienteering, fell running and cross-country.
Marlborough Running Club members include athletes who have excelled at the very highest levels at distances of 5000m, 80 miles and even 3,200 miles! The feature which binds us together is our enjoyment of running the downland and forest trails that abound in this part of England. Our many and varied training routes cover an area of some 200 square miles, from Devizes to Newbury, from the Berkshire Downs to Salisbury Plain.
The Club was founded in 1988, and currently has some 90 members. We meet to train three times a week. Wednesday evenings are our most popular session, with typically 25-35 members running from 5-10 miles in different speed groups.
