Welcome to the Winston Runners Website
Based in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Winston Runners are a running club of mixed age and ability (from beginners to experienced athletes), for runners aged 16+. The club's main training session is held at the track in Wythenshawe park on a Tuesday, with other runs taking place on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. For more details, take a look at the training page.
For those who are a little more competitive, we encourage our runners to represent the club in local, national and international races. As well as road racing, the club enters the Manchester Area Cross Country League.
So whether you are looking to keep fit or train for a Marathon, then we are the club for you. Should you have any further questions about joining or any other aspect of the Winston Runners, then please feel free to contact us. For any enquiries, please contact the club secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual Presentation Evening
I would like to congratulate Bernard and the committee, especially Bernard, for the excellent presentation evening that was held at the Wythenshawe Sports and Cricket club
The company and the food was of the highest order and the drink wasn't too bad either, I hope all of those that have planned to run on Sunday morning were still able to do so.
Congratulations to all those that won the awards for 2016. It may be your turn next year?
The club would not be able to function without the committee and coaches. These people are all volunteers and do it because they love to see people come into our club, who on occasions have no self confidence, to get out there and start running, and with there help on the track they can bring best out of anyone who come along.
We have had quite a big turnover of runners over the years and we still pride ourselves as being a club which helps the community. We like to be chilled, relaxed and enjoy the occasional drink.
I hope that everyone can keep up the good work and support the committee and the Coaches who will in turn endeavour to get the best out of all you budding marathon runners!
Good luck for 2017.
