Welcome to West Wight Road Runners! We are a small but friendly club with, currently, approximately 25 members, who enjoy running for many different reasons – social, fitness, competition, enjoyment – to a level that suits individual abilities.
Club members have an opportunity to run together on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. During the summer months (starting mid April) we have a programme of mainly off-road runs at different venues around the Island. In the winter we usually meet at the entrance to West Wight Sports Centre and run on roads around the Freshwater area. But sometimes we start at a different location on the island, so it is best to check the Programme page for details - go to the Winter Programme or Summer Programme page, depending on the season.
There are other events on the Island, and on the mainland, that Club members have the opportunity to participate in, e.g. the Needles Half Marathon, Ryde Harriers Open Races and the St. George's 10.
Being a member of an England Athletics affiliated club means that you pay £2 less on entry forms for races.
Club members also enjoy a 10% discount at Love Running.
We have a Club Cross Country race in January and an overall Club Championship based on results from races throughout the year.
Our official kit is Blue Team Line singlet and Black shorts or leggings. Club members are encouraged to purchase a singlet and these are currently available at a cost of £10 by contacting our Kit Officer, Sue Scott on email@example.com
There is a small Committee that meets regularly, and minutes are circulated to all Club members for information.

We try to keep Club members up to date with information regarding races, etc by email and those members without email addresses are kept informed by post. If you require any further information about any aspect of the Club you can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
