Wootton Road Runners began informally in January 1985 when four like minded people began running on a Thursday night from the Wootton Working Mens Club (WWMC) venue. These four who became the founder members of our club were Bill Green, Stuart Hearson, Steve Edwards and Alan Richardson.
In March 1987 the club became affiliated to the
Midland Counties Amateur Athletic Association. The numbers of runners
started to increase and it made changing in the Artistes
dressing room behind the stage at the WWMC a very interesting
and friendly affair.
As numbers continued to grow changing was moved to the committee room until it was decided that this could no longer cope and the club moved its training base to the recreation ground and associated changing facilities in Wootton village. It was this move that led to a rapid rise in female runners.
In 1999 we had again outgrown our changing facilities and we accepted an offer to move to the newly opened Whitewater Nene Centre. But early in 2000 we again moved due to increased numbers to Image & Fitness Centre in Brackmills. Membership continued it's upward spiral.
