Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In accordance with the latest government announcement regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, users should be aware of the instruction to stay at home, and to only leave the house for food, health reasons or essential work. You should also stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.

In light of this, the groups, clubs and societies listed within the Shropshire Community Directory will be unable to meet until further notice, and there may be a reduced service for other local and national organisations.

For further information, please contact the individual groups or organisations listed.

Market Drayton Running Club


Market Drayton Running Club (MDRC) is a club for all runners, whether you are 18 or 80 and whether you run just for fun, fitness or like to race.  The Club currently has around 130 1st claim members.  They have members who are keen road racers; keen fell runners; members who are fleet of foot and members who are joggers.  What they all share is the enthusiasm to run with a group of like-minded people, and therefore, there will always be the opportunity to have someone to run with, to help and to encourage you.  In addition, some of the Club's members have coaching qualifications, so are able to provide advice if needed.  

The Club meets every Monday and Wednesday at the Grove School at 6.30pm in the REAR car park, and they cater for all ages (18+), abilities and paces. They currently have four groups:

  • 3 mile group (blue),
  • 4-5 mile group (purple),
  • 5 mile (red) at a steady pace and
  • 5-8 mile group (black) at a slightly faster pace.

MDRC offer regular programs for complete beginners, and information about future dates will be made available on their website.  New members are always most welcome, and anyone interested should feel free to just turn up if you are already an established runner.
