We are a local friendly running club based in Totton. We welcome runners of all abilities. We run both competitively and socially. Structured training takes place on Monday and Wednesday evenings, along with social runs taking place on Friday mornings, Friday evenings, and Sunday mornings.
We are very lucky to live on the doorstep of the New Forest where many of our runs take place.
We compete in a number of local leagues and events such as The Hampshire Road Race League, Hampshire Cross County League, RR10, and CC6 Cross Country leagues. For more information on these events please view the races and leagues page
Thinking of joining us? Take a look at our Join us page for all the information you need and get in touch.
Next Sessions / Events
Please use the booking system to booking a training session. This helps us control numbers and keep a record of those in attendance. Spaces on each session are limited in line with government and England Athletics guidelines.
We ask our members to observe a minimum 2-meter space between themselves, fellow runners, and members of the public.

Lifting of lockdown restrictions and EA guidance has now allowed us to start limited training once again. Spaces are limited, please used the booking system to reserve a place. If you need help booking a place please contact a coach or member of the committee.
Thank you to everybody who suggested and voted for our new club motto. There were lots of very strong contenders and great ideas. Congratulations to Chris Barnes for his runaway winner 'A place and a pace for everyone'!
It's unlikely we'll be able to run any real CC6 events this season. The organisers have put on a virtual event to allow us to compete against each other as well as other clubs in the league. It's an offroad 5 mile time trial at a location of your choice (within covid guidelines)
Full details can be found on the CC6 website here http://cc6.co.uk/

Sad News - Brian Harvey
We are very sad to have to tell you that former club chair and Honorary Club President Brian Harvey passed away on 17th January.
Those of you who have been members of the club for a while will certainly remember Brian with great fondness. He stayed active even when he stopped running competitively.
He contributed a great deal to the club, with his active involvement in the Totton 10k, and coaching, as well as roles on the committee.
You can make a donation in his memory, either to Marie Curie Cancer Care or to The International Fund for Animal Welfare. Donations can be made via the Funeral Director, A H Cheater, 122 The Hundred, Romsey, SO51 8BY or via their web site - https://brian-harvey.muchloved.com/
The club sends its deepest sympathies to Brian's family and friends.
The New Forest enters tier 4 restrictions - Club Activities Suspended
As Totton and the New Forest have now been placed in tier 4, club activity is once again suspended. Our virtual events can continue and you are allowed to run with one other person from outside your household.

Important Information for Members - COIVD19
Coronavirus cases are increasing currently. This is how Totton Running Club will deal with news of a positive test in one of our training groups.
We train in a 'Covid secure' environment i.e. outside
We limit our group numbers, where possible, to less than those recommended by England Athletics.
We practice social distancing.
Close contact in our training environment is defined as being within 2 metres of someone for 15 mins or more.
When we have news of a positive test we will refer back to our training spreadsheet and identify any individuals who may have been in 'close contact' with the member who has tested positive within the last 48 hours of developing symptoms. This is in line with Government advice. None of you should have been in close contact during our training sessions.
For example, if you trained with that person on Wednesday and they developed symptoms on Saturday it is very unlikely that you will have been exposed. The Governments Track and Trace service will not contact you in this example. This is also however why you must not adjust the training record spreadsheet.
As an individual, if you develop symptoms you will be responsible for working with Track and Trace to supply details of anyone you have been in 'close contact' with. Track and Trace may then decide to go further and contact the running club. We don't know yet. Just be aware that we have those details as needed.
Despite this, we will still inform you by personal email if you have been in a group where someone has gone on to develop symptoms. This is because you may have had 'close contact' with the person and we don't know about it. Please take social distancing seriously. If we have an outbreak we will have to stop training. If you don't feel well. Don't come to training.
