About Us

We are a friendly and very enthusiastic group of people who love running and enjoy the company of other runners. We welcome runners of all standards and believe we have a great balance between all types of runners: fast and slow; old and young; male and female; experienced and newcomers

If you are new to running; if you want to run simply to get fitter; if you just want a run once a week or if you just want to come for a beer, this is the place for you. We also cater for more serious competitive running, with teams competing in the local cross-country and road leagues and various championship events. 

We have activities to suit all tastes. As well as the regular weekly gatherings, our members and teams enter various competitions through the year. We always have runners entering the London and Manchester Marathons, alongside others, and we make sure that all running events are combined with proper social events. 

We were founded in 2016 by a group of enthusiastic runners, who met through Marple parkrun, and have been pounding the streets and trails of Marple and the surrounding area ever since. Our distinctive logo and eye catching red and black ‘Dennis the Menace’ shirts are distinctively recognisable from a long way off! 

So, if you have moved to the area and want to find a new running club; or if you run a bit on the treadmill at the gym but want to get outdoors; or if you are just taking up the sport, please read on to learn more about us...  the following pages showcase the entire spectrum of running events that our members enjoy...
