What Dragons say about Dragons

When you run with Dragons, it's not just about the running. We also have an active social calendar. In our opinion, what's the point in running if you can't then have some occasional fun that doesn't involve wearing lycra?


Dragons is a social and inclusive running club and our ethos and culture runs through all our club activities - at our training runs, when competing in local leagues and races, as well as at our various social events.  We offer a warm welcome to experienced and beginner runners alike.

I've been a member for 19 years. I joined when the club was linked to LA Fitness. My wife, Wendy, had been running for a few years before me and encouraged me to come along and join.

I joined Dragons Running Club just before the Covid lockdowns started in 2020. I wanted to join an active running club that wouldn't put any pressure on me to run beyond what I wanted and support me in my running goals. Dragons delivered on this in spades!

Dragons Running Club is a family of like-minded runners, we run together, we join events together, we laugh and enjoy ourselves together. We don't take ourselves seriously and we always welcome new members.
