About Bristol Trail Runners

Bristol Trail Runners is an adventure running club suitable for all abilities, from beginners to elite athletes. Founded in 2019 by Ultrarunner and Endurance Coach Joe Wenman, the club has thrived with over three hundred runners joining us at one point or another.


The club organises a grand collection of trail running events. Local club runs, further afield club runs, webinars, coached training sessions, running camps and more. Members take advantage of attending all of these events while also receiving discounts on almost any product or service related to running. 

Joining a running club is a great way to socialise, keep fit and better your running skills as part of Bristols adventure running community. Anyone is welcome to join BTR. Hit the button below or scroll down to read more about the club.


Club Events

We organise over 20 club events every month. Times and days of runs differ to make sure everyone can make some of them. There is plenty to keep you busy! Our local club runs take place in Leigh Woods, Ashton Court, Frome Valley, Trym Valley, Stoke Park and Clifton Downs. We also take regular weekend trips to the Brecon Beacons, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Quantocks, Mendips and Wye Valley. A few times a year we organise running camps in locations like the Lake District, Snowdonia and Cornwall.

Coached training sessions usually take place every Tuesday at either 7am or 6pm at Clifton Downs or Leigh Woods. These sessions include interval training, hill repeats, tempo runs and circuit training. We also organise special coached sessions like introductions to mountain running and various webinars.


Events are designed for all abilities to the part, from 5k runners to ultra marathon runners.
