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.
