About Us

Shepshed Running Club is a friendly local running club that welcomes adult runners of all ages and abilities.

Shepshed Running Club was founded in 1983 by local runners and in 2018 celebrated its 35th anniversary.

The Club is always keen to enroll new members and we welcome all abilities ranging from social runners to serious racers.

Our main club nights are Tuesday and Thursdays, with Thursday being more beginner orientated. More details can be found on the Run With Us page, including details of when and where we meet.

The club participates in many local runs and races including the Derby Runner Cross Country and Leicestershire Road Running Leagues.

Our runners also take part is a wide variety of events including fell racing, orienteering and other off road events. If you want to try any particular type of event, there is usually an existing club member who can give guidance.

We organise and host the Shepshed 7 – a 7 mile traffic free race. The race, run on the first Sunday in November since 2001, is extremely popular and usually oversubscribed.
