Welcome to Ely Runners


Training Options (As of August 2020)

Self Arranged

  • Use social media and Strava to arrange and share runs individually or socially distanced with fellow members.
  • The Ely Runners summer training schedule is still available on the website along with maps and routes.

Virtual Training

  • On Tuesdays (6:30pm) and Thursdays (7pm) there are virtual training sessions available.
  • Go to a suitable running location and connect to a zoom meeting on your smartphone.

Group Bubbles

  • For seniors on Wednesdays (6pm) we are looking to trial training bubbles to get back to something approaching our usual pre-COVID training.
  • You will need to register your attendance prior to the session.
  • We meet at the training venue and a coach guides you through a socially distanced session with a fixed number of athletes (5 or 11 +1 coach per bubble).
  • For full details and sessions, see email.


  • Junior training bubbles have already started and are similar except they are 4 juniors + 2 coaches only on Mondays.


  • For now, our wildly popular Beginners 5k training course is suspended. It will return when we are able to stage it. Watch this space.

Looking ahead to the end of the year, we hope to stage our popular Woodditton training run as usual, provisionally on Sunday 13th December.
