Our Tuesday & Thursday session are our popular Couriers Clubrun Session – We usually have 4 groups over a mixture of distances and paces on offer. Wednesday are our weekly speed session which is available to all members and involve track, hills and road reps.
We are far more than a running club, we have many socials throughout the year including the AGM, many of these events involve a few drinks – they are pretty popular amongst our club members & a great way of making new friends.
As a club we organise a series of races which includes the Christmas 10k, an offroad race (part of the Herefordshire Summer offroad League) the Jon Ward Memorial Race & we are very proud of our 3 race 5k Series on one of the flattest road courses in the UK, We encourage our runners to take part & make the most of running in these races & for any reason you don’t we always have marshalling duties which need filling.
We have a number of ways members can input into the development of the club, we have open club meetings and a very active facebook page as we feel the input of our members is key to the progress of the club.
