BTR Road Runners

Welcome to our website! The BTR Road Runners (formally The Ship Inn Striders) are a running group for all abilities, based in Hoylake, Merseyside.

Some of the Road Runners

We meet twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm at the Whitts End bar in Hoylake – you will be more than welcome! Our group comprises a wide range of abilities, from newbies right through to seasoned runners who have covered marathons and triathlons.

Click here for details of our “Couch to 5k” programme – if you’re new to running or returning to running, give it a go!

Have a browse through our updated race calendar, for details of events where you will often see our orange shirts flying around the course; there’s some fantastic events around to take part in!

As well as local races we often take a number of ‘road trips’ throughout the year, one of which was the Loch Ness Marathon – story here, or you can read about those who took on this year’s May the Fourth Be With You here.

One of our runners who has covered the London Marathon is Wendy, and you can read her experiences of the event and her training in the lead up to it here.

It’s not all about the running! Some of our team have undertaken First Aid training, courtesy of Robert Peel International, as you can read in this article.

If it ain’t fun, we don’t run”
