Training:

 

During the winter months most runs are in Easingwold for around 45 minutes including short exercises for those that are looking to improve. Once the lighter evenings arrive we take the opportunity to venture into the countryside around Easingwold, both on and off road. We also run from other locations organised by club members as “away evenings” Select "Latest Programme"  for details.  Runs vary between 4 - 7 miles usually in groups of similar ability. 
Specialist training session are on Mondays. Others take place from the Galtres car park on Tuesday, one at 6 pm for all abilities and one at 7pm for all abilities including steadier runners. Some members also meet on Sundays in the Galtres car park for a longer, run where the emphasis is on distance rather than speed. These are especially popular in the winter months.
 

Beginners:

 

All standards of runners are catered for on regular clubnights but since 2008 a separate Beginners course has been run from in the summer for the complete beginners or those wishing to return to running at a leasurely pace. Over 50 of the beginners have since become full members. With club numbers at record levels and coaches fully occupied organising Thursday training sessions, it was decided to take a year off from the Beginners Group in 2011. However, the course returned again in 2012. In 2015, as part of out 20 year celebrations we ran a 5 week Beginners Course during July and August. Beginners Group  The Tuesday run at 7pm may be suitable for those just starting out. However, you should contact us via the Contact us page in the first instance.

 

Competition

 

Club Championship:

 

We run a Club Championship through the year starting in September. There are 20 events with the 8 best to count; mainly 10 K distance with the odd shorter 5/.6 KM or longer 10 miler or half marathon. All the events are chosen for popularity and proximity to Easingwold. The championship results are scaled for both age and gender allowing just one championship table. Club Championship

Social Events:

 

Every few weeks during the summer months we travel  to various local villages for an “away evening” to enjoy a run and finish the evening in a local hostelry. We also host other socials plus a Christmas Dinner. A longer social event undertaken by members in the past is the annual Great Langdale weekend where members travel to the Lake District to compete in the St Georges Day 10K, enjoy some different hostelries and take in a Lakeland hill for a gentle days walking. Recently, members have travelled to Chamonix to compete in a range a challenging runs around Mont Blanc.
