We are a friendly local club always willing to welcome new people – either those currently running or those wishing to take up the sport. With a wide range of ages, from 16 years and up, all are welcome to come to our club nights – new runners, visitors to our local area or anyone just fancying a spot of sociable running. We make no demands on people to become members straight away – we appreciate it can take a little while to feel comfortable running with a “running club”, many of our current members have said they felt they didn’t have the ability to be part of a club. If this is the situation you are in then please come along – we won’t bite! – and join us on some trial runs. You will probably surprise yourself! Seriously though, with many years experience, and qualified coaches within the club, we can offer a good mix of training abilities and sound advice to everyone who visits us. Our philosophy has always been to try and promote the sport of running within the local community in as many ways as possible, whether by encouraging new runners with our walk / run programmes or pushing our “elite!!” members to participate to the best of their abilities. Above all we do this because it’s FUN, we really enjoy it and hope that some of that enthusiasm will rub off onto others.
We meet on Tuesday nights at the Phoenix Leisure Centre at 6.45pm for a 7pm start for a group social run of various distances and speeds, we are usually back in the car park shortly after 8pm.
Thursday nights are usually coached training sessions again meeting at the Phoenix Leisure Centre at 6.45pm for a 7pm start. These sessions vary from week to week, to find out more click here.
Note that we have free use of the foyer and changing facilities, but not the showers or gym.
Originally founded in 1989, the club has gone from strength to strength with membership increasing significantly over recent years. More and more members are taking part in the Cornish Grand Prix series of races, not to mention any number of other events throughout the country and abroad.
