WHAT WE OFFER
The club is very diverse, we have some members that are very competitive and have represented their Country & County. We also have people who just want companionship and wish to run with friends. All members are equally important to us. Redhill has a committee that meets monthly to ensure smooth running of the club, they can usually be caught at the club on a club night or can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org
Sited just beyond the changing rooms in Redhill Leisure Centre is the club notice board, it contains up to date information about the club including forthcoming events, race entry forms and any upcoming club socials, these are regularly organised throughout the year. This information can also be found on the Redhill facebook page.

WHY DO YOU RUN / WHY DO YOU WANT TO RUN?
Road Running - there are an extensive list of races of varying distances, covering various terrains (road, trail, fell, track) throughout the year.
The Road Race Summer League
A series of 5 to 6-mile races held monthly on a Wednesday evening (during April to August). Entry is only open to clubs affiliated to the Notts AAA www.nottsaaa.org. A vast range of ability spans the field which numbers over 400. As a member of Redhill Road Runners your entry to these races is free, although you must wear your club vest! (This is the one series of races to do even if you wish to do no others throughout the year! Friendly rivalry exists between all clubs, not to be missed).
Team Events & Relays
Events run throughout the year which include the Christmas relays, as well as numerous County, Midland & National based competitions.
Run during the winter months, the club participates in the North Midlands League (higher standard with friendlier courses) & the East Midlands League (entertaining courses). No cost to enter but again you must wear your club vest.
The RRR Grand Prix
We run an internal club men’s & ladies competition where members pick up points for running at the nominated races selected during the year. Awards are presented each year.
The RRR Fell Race Series
This is a club competition based on accessible fell races in the Peak District. As with the Grand Prix, the more you do, the more points you get and the more likely you are to win an award.
A number of members participate in duathlon, triathlon, orienteering & other multi sport/adventure endurance events.
IF THIS IS YOU, THEN THE CLUB OFFERS…
As mentioned before the club is very diverse in its ability range & in people’s outlook to the sport. We find that some people settle really quickly when they join whilst others take a while to feel part of the club. We feel that it is important to initially settle new members into the right running group, even if it is one that in hindsight maybe too slow for them. There is nothing worse than leaving you with a group that is too quick or runs too far so that you come back “in pieces” or even injured. Please tell us if we don’t get it initially right. Once you have settled you will find a group who runs at your ability. You will find you become motivated by interacting with other runners who will share you goals. As you progress there is the opportunity to move up to the next group if you wish or to continue to improve with your initial group.
We always prefer our members to run in groups. Besides being safer, people within the group will offer encouragement. Time also passes more quickly as you run & chat. You will find that groups often run together at a weekends as well as on a club nights, and people are always willing to share lifts to races, People who work shifts also tend to run at other times together to fit in with their work patterns.
running with a club will help to bring structure & routine your running schedule. Going for a run and coming along to club nights will become part of your way of life & your fitness will steadily improve as you progress.
Coaching & Guidance
The club has invested a lot in coaching over the last few year’s. We now have coaches for all groups from new to experienced runners. All coaches are more than willing and happy to offer advice & a suggested running schedule to meet your personal needs.
