Wigston Phoenix are a friendly local running club, catering for runners of all abilities in Wigston, Oadby and beyond. Our main base is the Royal British Legion, Bushloe End, Wigston, LE18 2BA.

DO I NEED TO RUN FAR OR FAST TO COME TO THE CLUB?

No! Anyone is welcome to come along and run with us. Our members cover a wide range of ages, abilities and aims, from beginners to seasoned runners and from social runners to serious club competitors. There will always be a group or individual to run with, whatever your ability, as well as experienced runners on hand to offer advice in reaching your goals. Come along to the Legion on a Tuesday and try some runs with us. If you like it, join us!

WHEN DO YOU MEET?

Tuesday 6.45pm for 7pm start - Main Legion training night. Come changed ready to run. Runs of different paces and different distances, anywhere between 4 and 10 miles. On road in winter and over fields and trails in summer.

WHAT ABOUT RACES?

Belonging to a running club doesn't mean you have to race – it’s not compulsory! But if you do want to compete, our teams take part in the Leicestershire Road Running League, the Derby Runner Cross Country League and other road, cross country and fell races, both locally and further afield. These races cater for runners of all abilities – don’t feel you have to be a certain standard before you give them a go.

WHAT ABOUT THE SOCIAL SIDE?

We like to combine running and racing with an active social life… As well as a variety of ‘interesting’ social evenings, there are pub runs, handicaps, training weekends, organised club running tours at home and abroad etc…

HOW DO I JOIN?

Fill in a form (available at the Legion on Tuesday nights) or contact any of the people listed on the contact page. Membership fee is currently £20 per year.
