Welcome to
Wigan Phoenix Running Club

Wigan Phoenix, based at My Life@Thompson House Equestrian Centre, Off Pepper Lane, Standish, WN6 OPP, is a voluntary organisation, formed in 1987.  In our 27 year history we have had over 350 people associated with our wonderful Club.  We are primarily a Road Running and Cross Country Club but we also deliver blocks of track training as many of our members have grown up track racing. Our active membership includes Juniors, Seniors, Vet Ladies and Vet Men.  Our youngest member being 17 and our oldest active member is 75.

Our aim is to support and promote athletics in Wigan and the surrounding Communities - check out the Diary tab for our training sessions or click onto Facebook to see what our members have been upto. 

We offer coaching for beginners through to elite, many beginners have quickly progressed and often exceeded their personal goals. Wigan Phoenix members have great experience and talent racing over a range of distances, we have members who have competed at County, English Schools and English Championship level and we are proud to have our very own Guinness Book of Records Holder over the Marathon distance. 

No special commitment is required to be involved in our Club, its more of a question of you telling us what you want to achieve and we will help you to reach your goal in a fun and motivational way. If you want to run for general fitness, weight loss or personal bests or if you are a keen adventure racer or triathlete or just want to run socially and meet new friends then we have space for you in Team Phoenix. We also partner with our Triathlon friends in the Community so there is always plenty of advice available whatever your discipline.

If you fancy giving running a go come along and be part of the Team, all ages and abilities will feel very welcome.
