This is the website for Queensberry Running Club, a small club based between Lockerbie & Moffat, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
Born out of lockdown due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic a small group of people used to going to gym & fitness classes came up with the idea of meeting up in legally permitted groups for runs in July 2020 whilst the local fitness facilities & gyms were still closed.
From this small group Queensberry Running Club was born, we set out to be a less serious alternative to other running clubs in the area, with the ethos of having fun whilst keeping fit. We take our name from one of the prominent hills in the Moffat area, Queensberry.
Our midweek runs / training nights take place on a Wednesday with the first runners usually heading out at 5.40pm, with timings up to our fastest runners meaning we all get finished the run at the same time and lets us all have a blether and laugh at the end of it.
We also have a Summer & Winter weekend Schedule of runs that take in both our own routes and some organised races as these become available. The weekend schedule runs give our members a Friday, Saturday and Sunday to complete the runs & submit their time to be kept in the official results for ‘event’,
As an attempt to recognise what our members have achieved we also hold an annual awards night in which the committee votes on the Most Improved & Most Consistent Athletes awards, we also have a members voted Runners Choice award where we open in up to our members to vote for the athlete they feel has performed the best, contributed the most or just an all round good egg. For our first award night we also had the first years legends award where our core members who make just about every midweek run thus forming our core group got recognised.
