Where we’re at

In 2016 we moved to Scottow Enterprise Park (formerly the old RAF Coltishall site) which provides us with a flat and fast training location. We have ample parking and a spacious headquarters to meet in, named The Mike Groves Room. Our runs and hill sessions take us away from the park and onto some of the quiet lanes of Skeyton and Swanton Abbott.

Membership of the club now stands in the region of 200 with over 50% members being female. We have members who take part in their weekly local parkrun to those who run ultramarathons.

Training

Training is conducted throughout the year and in all but the harshest of weather conditions. We meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings. Each week we alternate effort training with run sessions in the week, with a longer run, with varying options of distance, planned for the Sunday. For more detailed information see the Training section.

Want to check us out?

So why not give us a try – you will be guaranteed a warm welcome. We understand that our club needs to be right for you and your running objectives and/or social experiences, so prospective members are welcome to take part in a number of the sessions without any obligation to join. If you’re interested in being a part of one of the friendliest running clubs in the area, then please come along one training night and give us a try.
