Road Running

This page is primarily for Southport Waterloo's road runners. About half the club's membership is made up of senior road runners and they compete in cross country and road relays as well as road races.

 

The club organizes Grand Prix competitions for series of road, fell and trail races each year. See below for more details.

 

The road runners have training sessions on roads, in pinewoods and on the track. See the Training section of the About Us page for details.
