About our club
We are a running club with a mission to get people active and fitter, offering a chance to be part of a very friendly and encouraging team. We cater for all levels of runners, with varied sessions throughout the week.
Poplar Running Club was set up in Loughborough by Lee Dawson, Darryl Hughes and Kevin Brooks with the aim to get people running with a smile on their face. Now the club has grown to more than 300 members of all ages and abilities, and has running groups in Loughborough, Mountsorrel and Quorn. We do several different events during the week, all at 6:30pm:
We are an ARC and UKA affiliated running club that welcomes runners of all abilities. Complete beginners are made very welcome, we’ve offered a couch to 5k course and always have a number of complete beginners being supported.
Joining our runs
It is entirely free to come along & join in a few of our sessions. There’s no need to book, just introduce yourself to a run leader on the day. We only ask that you’re over 16 to join the adult nights, and ensure you wear appropriate kit for the conditions.
Our club meets at different places each time, the latest run details are always posted on Facebook around a day before. Poplar Runners Facebook Group
