Tailenders is a running club for bellringers. An increasing number of ringers have been inspired by parkrun to take up middle-distance running, including many who would not previously have imagined they could run 5 kilometres.
You can also join Tailenders by registering through parkrun - although still let us know you've done it as we can easily miss new people on the list. Edit your parkrun profile by following the "Manage my profile" link which you get in the weekly newsletter and your run results emails. Then click on "Update". In the "Running club" field there's a dropdown in which you should find "Tailenders" listed. Select this and then scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Please alter". parkrun only allows for people to register themselves against one running club, so if you're already a member of another club you'll still have to email us.
