Goring Road Runners was founded in 1984 and we currently have around 35 club members. We are a UK Athletics member and a member of the West Sussex Fun Run League (WSFRL) which organises mostly off road races up to 10k amongst its 18 league members.
Our race is the first in this series each year, the aptly named Hangover 5 off road race and is usually one or two days after the New Year excesses!
We meet twice a week, (Tuesday and Thursday evenings) at the Sidney Walter Centre in Worthing for a mix of training sessions including speed work, hill reps and the occasional longish run. In the summer months we take advantage of the fine evenings and proximity to the South Downs for some off-road training runs.
We are a very small and friendly club, welcoming new members of all ages and all running ability including complete beginners. With a small membership these days we are better suited to beginners or runners preferring a less formal training regime. That said, members regularly run races from 5k to 50M; some fast, some slow and some walk-run.
On the social side, the club organises several events including a summer BBQ, curry evenings, race nights and quiz nights during the winter season.
