Welcome to the website of the Quakers Running Club!
Welcome to the homepage of the Quakers Running Club. Quakers RC has developed a reputation as being one of the friendliest running clubs in the North-East of England and is more than happy to welcome individuals of all abilities into the sport, let’s face it, we all had to start somewhere and you don't need to be an Olympic athlete to get enjoyment out of running and athletics. Whether you just want to start running for the sake of fitness, or are about to do your first 10k race or 25th Marathon, we can help you achieve your goals.
Our members regularly take part in all disciplines of running: on the road, the track, the trails and fells, cross country and the track. We have a wide array of coaches with specialisms in different terrains and distances; we specialise in helping first time runners and beginners develop a love of running.
Our training sessions are held at and around the clubs base at Abbey Playing Fields on Abbey Rd on the west side of Darlington. The sessions are held every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30pm until 8:00pm and are open to all.
We actively encourage non-members to come along and see what Quakers has to offer, and no charge is made for attending these initial sessions. No one is under any obligation to join, but our hope is that you will enjoy training with us, will keep returning and after four weeks then decide to become a member of the club. (Please see “Membership” page to download a non-members registration form for completion on the first night).
