We pride ourselves on being a friendly club with runners of all standards aged 18 & over, from first-timers through to serious competitors - why not come along & make new like-minded friends?


Elsewhere on this website you'll find details of our regular training sessions. You're welcome to come along & give us a try - if you'd like to speak to someone first, please visit the Contacts/Officials page.


If you're not sure whether a running club is for you, please read this blog written by Dan Yarwood. If this doesn't convince you to give it a go, nothing will!
