Road and Trail Runs

On Thursday evening a Trail or Road group goes from the Leisure Centre at 7pm. It is led from the back by an experienced runner.  You’ll need appropriate shoes, and a waterproof (and a headtorch from September to April). The run will typically be no more than 10km long, and could involve some mud, slippy bits (and darkness).  When the days are getting shorter, please ensure that you can be seen by wearing Hi-Viz or reflective clothing or led-lights. 

We rely on club volunteers to suggest and lead runs throughout the year so keep your eye on our Facebook page to see what’s happening each Thursday.

We cater for all abilities and a firm fixture on Thursday’s is the “Plod Squad”: a run of between 5-8km with walking breaks if needed, no one gets left behind.

As a club we abide by and strongly encourage all runners to follow the Countryside Code. Roaming on the hills is a hard fought Right and it would be tragic if restrictions were placed upon us all because of inappropriate actions by the uninformed and selfish few.

If you’re running with a dog, there are guidelines in the same document – mostly pertaining to Effective Control. It’d be great if you could take a couple of moments to familiarise yourself with it.
