We are a friendly club and welcome applications for membership from all ages and abilities. We also have a thriving junior section. Our modest fees are set at a level where we look to merely cover our expenses. On Wednesdays, we have a pub/social run, where members can run together and then have a chat before returning home. For details of membership and training, please see the separate pages. If you think that you would like to join us, why not come along to one of our pub runs and see what you think. The details of the next one are usually on the web site. Details of fees and a membership application form are also on the web site.
