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. Want to try a half marathon or marathon for the first time and not overly worried about your times? We’ve runners who’ll buddy up and help your training along!

Join us for our couch to 10k training sessions Tuesdays from 6th February. It’s free to take part and we will walk, jog and run alongside you to help you reach your 10k goal in 8 weeks.

Meet at Sydney Walter Centre 6.45pm for a 7.00pm start. Any questions, please get in touch via our contact page.

There are a lot of fun local races to sign up to so you can try out your new 10k distance. We will be working to help you get ready for the Lewes 10km on 21 April.

In the summer months we take advantage of the fine evenings and proximity to the South Downs for our Tue/Thu training runs and our club handicap and knockout cup races. These trail runs are typically between 3 and 6 miles.

We are a small and friendly club, welcoming new members of all ages and all running ability including complete beginners. Members regularly run races from 5k to 50k; some fast, some slow and some walk-run. On club nights we will always endeavour to make sure no-one is left to run on their own.

On the social side, the club organises several events including a summer BBQ, curry evenings, race nights and quiz nights during the winter season.
