About the Club

Cranleigh is between Guildford and Horsham on the B2128 (see Map

Our running club is a very sociable group and all newcomers are welcome. From October 2010 we are based at Cranleigh Cricket Club, The Common, Cranleigh, Surrey, GU6 8NS.

(if coming from Guildford, the Cranleigh Cricket Club is on the left opposite the Cranley Hotel).

Our annual membership is usually in the region of 45 people, with typical running groups of around 15 during the summer runs. Our members are of varying age and ability from top club standard to joggers. So regardless of your age or fitness, there will be a group to suit you. Apart from winter-time street runs our training is mostly cross-country within a radius of five miles from Cranleigh. Throughout the year we have a number of social events allowing us to explore the local restaurants and pubs.


Training Sessions
We run/jog every Tuesday and Thursday evening. We also meet for a training run on Sunday mornings outside Cranleigh Leisure Centre ( Village Way ).

Depending on numbers there is usually a fast, a medium and a slow running group. The mid week sessions are off road in British Summer Time and around the streets of Cranleigh in winter. These sessions last for about one hour and comprise intervals, fartleks, tempo-runs, hill work or just running for the sheer exhilaration. On Sundays we typically have 2 types of runs happening. One run where the emphasis is on a slower, longer run of between 90 minutes to 2 hours taking in some of the most stunning countryside and hills in the area. The second run is about Marathon Training and distance which takes place during most of the year. Both runs depart from the Cranleigh Cricket Club car park at 8am on Sundays. 


Members are encouraged to compete in the free monthly MABAC league races offering a 5 mile trail course with all finishers winning points for the club. A number of members do a variety of other events such as:

  • Hash runs and Pub runs
  • 10K's
  • Half Marathons & Marathons
  • Ultra Distance & Trail runs

Why not come along on a Tuesday or Thursday evening and try us out?
