The club was founded in 1983 by a small group of athletes mainly interested in road running and developing opportunities for Senior Athletes at club level. The juniors section was formed later to deliver basic skills in Athletics with some competition opportunities club level.

The Club is always on the look out for new members of all abilities across the junior and senior sections, for new volunteers, and for people to train as coaches.


2015/16 Membership Fees are now due! Please complete the Senior membership form (click here) and pass it (with payment) to Paul Geldeart or Charmian Heaton asap.  Forms and payment can be left with Bobbi in the pavilion on club nights so no excuses.

 Winter training for Junior and Senior athletes is now underway at Oaklands playing fields at the bottom of Caledonian Road.  
All senior road running groups will meet and run at 18:30 to allow parents of junior athletes to get back before the end of the junior training session.  The fell runners will continue to meet and run at 7pm from Oaklands.  There is also a strength and conditioning session in the pavilion starting at 19:30
