Yes we train, yes we race but Chorlton Runners isn’t just about the running, we have an active social calendar ranging from nights out to trips abroad.


2012 has been an eventful year with runners taking part in around 30 different races, in Manchester we have recorded the second highest attendance for any club in the local Park Run series and as a collective we have run training miles in the 10’s of thousands. But we are more than just runners, we have strong social links and friendships running through the club and as with previous years the amount of cakes, coffees and beers shared rivals the tally training miles.

We introduced an overseas trip this year with 13 members of our club completing the Berlin Marathon. The success and envy of those who didn’t run has motivated us to organise 2013’s trip already which will see a huge number of CR’s descend on Amsterdam to take part in their Marathon, Half Marathon and 8km race weekend. A training weekend in Wales, Xmas party and know doubt numerous other events will present a affordable and enjoyable calendar throughout 2013.
