Road Running


We are very fortunate to have a large and active group of runners in the Road Running section of Salisbury A&RC. We welcome a wide range of runners; young (16+) and old (<100), athletes, runners and joggers to join us on our busy, weekly, road running fixtures.
Please come and join us on our Wednesday Night Club Runs, starting and finishing at the Athletics Track at Five Rivers Leisure Centre. Meet for 6.30pm in the club house on the Athletics track.

Every week the following groups will be organised:

Group 1 – 2.5 to 3 miles at 12 min/mile

Group 2 – 4 to 4.5 miles at 11:30 min/mile

Group 3 – 5 to 5.5 miles at 11 min/mile

Group 4 – 5 to 5.5 miles at 10 min/mile

Group 5 – 6.5 miles at 9:30 min/mile

Group 6 – 6.5 miles at 9 min/miles

Group 7 – 8 miles at 8 min/mile

Group 8 – Coached session (Hills/Intervals/Fartlek)

These groups will all be led by a qualified England Athletics leader in running fitness. These “Run Leaders” will know the route they will be taking their group, will be carrying mobile phones and whistles, will ensure that the runners within the group are looked after and keep all of the runners within the group together.

We are keen supporters of the Hampshire Road Race League (HRRL) and field ladies and mens’ teams in two divisions. The HRRL season, runs from September to May each year and comprises race distances from 5 to 13.1 miles. The races are all organised by running clubs and includes our own Salisbury 10 which takes place in March/April.

Summer Pub Runs

During the summer we arrange Friday night runs starting and finishing at a local pub where we enjoy a well deserved drink and something to eat. All club members are welcome and if you prefer, we also arrange a walk for the less energetic! This is a great way to enjoy a run or walk through some wonderful countryside, socialise with some fellow runners/walkers and end the week with a relaxing drink and supper.
So if you are interested in joining why not come along one Wednesday or Friday (summer only) evening and try it out for yourself? See Pub Run summer dates in social events listing.

If you would like any further information please email Rod Smith and Stuart Holloway, our road running managers via for more details.
We look forward to welcoming you!
