Welcome to Wigston Phoenix R C

Welcome to Wigston Phoenix Running Club. We are a friendly, sociable club who cater for all standards of runners in Wigston, Oadby and South West Leicestershire.
Our main training night is Tuesday, when we meet at The Elms Social and Ex-Services Club (formerly the Royal British Legion) in Wigston.
For more details, see the training and about us pages.
Web page
Nicky Whitehead has agreed to help with keeping the web page up to date with news, results, photos etc.

Training weekend
17-19 April 2015 Hartington Hall, Derbys - last few places left! See Social Events Page for full details
Winter Road Running League
The winter league is a closed league meaning you must be a member of an affiliated club to participate (e.g Wigston Phoenix!). You arrive on the day and pay £4 (50p increase from last year to cover additional cost) to your club representative (that’s me this year) and off you go:) Rememeber to bring your chip back to the desk after your race, so we know you have finished safely and avoid a £10 fine! After your 1st race you keep the same race number for the duration of winter league, so keep hold of your number and remember it for the next race(s) :) Please note a club vest or top must be worn for these races (see me). See the fixtures list for race details.
