We welcome adult runners of all standards, and if you are already able to run 5 km in 45 minutes or less, then the best way to get started is to join one of our regular club runs which take place every Thursday & Sunday Morning from the King George Field in Boxted, or The Tuesday and Thursday Evening Sessions.
We welcome new runners to participate in clubs runs for up to 3 sessions to try us out before formally joining as a member.
For those of you that are new to running or not able to run 5 km yet, we recommend you start by taking one of our 10 week Beginners group courses, which will get you to 5km.
Alternatively, if you are between the two standards, Contact Us and one of our coaches will be in touch to see what assistance can be offered to help.

Club London Marathon Place
Every year, as an affiliated club, Boxted Runners receive a place in the London Marathon. A draw will be held every November for all eligible Boxted Runners who are also EA Affiliated Members who wish to run the event. The place cannot be transferred or sold and must be run by the winner of the draw.
Boxted Runners offers membership to runners over 16 years of age at a cost of £20 per year
England Athletics affiliation can be added for an additional fee of £15.
|Joining from:||Without EA Affiliation||With EA Affiliation|
|1st April – 31st August||£20.00||£35.00|
|1st September – 31st December||£10.00||£25.00|
|1st January – 1st April||New members pay the following year’s membership fee in full & receive January / February / March for free|
Membership of England Athletics brings a wide variety of benefits for members ranging from reduced entry fees for road races to discounts at Sweatshop and much more. Importantly, it enables you to opt to receive fortnightly bulletins on what is happening in the sport including essential information for athletes to know. To find out more visit the England Athletics Registration & Affiliation on the EA website.
Another benefit of membership is that the club receives a free place or places for entry to the following year’s London Marathon. Given the number of places awarded is dependent on the number of affiliated club members, only affiliated members – who have not been successful in the main London Marathon ballot – are invited to put forward their name into a club ballot. Thus if you are interested in running the London Marathon this may be another reason to become EA affiliated.
