Club History

Chesapeake Road Runners were formed in 1984 by a small group of dedicated people who wanted to give Chaddesden and its surrounding area a running club of its own.

Membership was slow to start with but gradually increased, and due to the dedication and the very hard work of all its members the club started to become very successful.

The club was very proud to be awarded UK Athletics (now England Athletics) affiliation in 1986.  The club continued to progress throughout the 1980’s and 90’s and continues to thrive well into the new millennium.
