  3. Thinking of joining us?

We meet every Wednesday in the foyer of Horwich Leisure Centre at 6.55pm for a 7.00pm start. We usually start off with a few announcements before splitting off into groups, it’s all very informal and friendly. Normally there are two or three road groups that head towards the trails around Horwich and Rivington in Summer, and in the Winter we stick to the roads. Our hardy fell runners go up onto the local moors, in all weathers, even in Winter where they will use powerful headtorches to guide them.

We also have a cycling group on Monday evening. We welcome all abilities and you will never be left behind. If you are interested in joining us, contact us for more information, you are welcome to come and take part in a couple of sessions to see if our club is for you.

  • Our club uses a membership form. Payment is made via online banking or by cheque.
  • We have two types of membership, full membership which includes UKA membership and social membership.
  • All members have access to join our private Facebook group, this is updated daily with all relevant information and events.
  • Lostock members enjoy discounted sports massages at Thrive Sports Massage

    What our members love about Lostock A.C.

    Greg Kilshaw
    Joining Lostock AC has been one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I decided to give it a try mainly to loose weight and meet new people. It's really helped with my weight, mental health and output on life. I've been in the club over a year now. Everyone makes you feel so welcome and I love being part of the Lostock family. My running has definitely improved, especially seeing all the medals I've won. It is not just running, Lostock offers other activities too such as cycling, bootcamp and skiing. All I've had a go at which has just been brilliant. Lostock is my second family . I have entered the Machester marathon next year and an ultra. All this for someone who couldn't run . Everyone has made me feel very welcome in the club, I now consider myself to be a runner and would recommend anyone to give Lostock a try.

    I joined Lostock AC to help improve my running and to motivate me to run more often. The club has surpassed my expectations. I am not from Bolton originally and did not have many friends in the area. I now feel part of an extended family. I have been encouraged and supported to run half marathons, marathons and an Ultra. I would never believe this was possible 3 years ago.

    I’m proud to be a member of Lostock AC, it’s an inclusive club with lovely people, there’s plenty of sporting activities to get involved in and the social get togethers are always welcoming and fun.
