BRJ Run and Tri is a friendly club of around 350 runners and triathletes based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. Members range from aged 7 to over 70, across all abilities and beginner to experienced. Whilst most members take part in organised races, many join to find new routes, make friends, get fitter and for the sheer enjoyment of running, swimming or cycling.

Formed in 1988 as BRJ Roadrunners, we are affiliated to England Athletics and the British Triathlon Federation. In 2012 the club incorporated the triathlon section and became BRJ Run and Tri.

What does BRJ stand for?

The club used to be based and sponsored by the BRJ Working Men’s Club in Huntingdon, (now demolished). B, R and J are the initials of the three founding members of that club – Bastini, Rigden and Jaques.
