We are a friendly running club with mixed abilities of male and female runners. The club was formed in 1988 and we welcome new members. We have trained coaches and members with vast running experience all of whom are happy to give advice and share their knowledge to enable members to improve and reach their full potential.
Monday is our main club session. We meet in Cogan Leisure Centre at 7pm in the winter and move to Cosmeston Lakes for the summer months. Our sessions are varied and suitable for all members. *
Wednesday sessions are conversational runs which can be more like mystery tours of the area. These runs take in country paths, woods, fields and stiles and we generally explore the areas of Penarth and Dinas Powys. We start together, stay together and finish together.
There are also ad hoc track sessions arranged on a Wednesday.
Thursday sessions are mainly hill sessions, but can also be Fartlek or Tempo runs if we have had a hill session on the Monday.
Weekend runs are often arranged via Facebook. Many of our members run a Parkrun on a Saturday morning or volunteer to marshal at one of our local Parkruns.
We have Club Championship and Cross Country races. Members often travel to races together for a good day out. Weekends away at Marathons or other races are fun packed weekends for the runners and the supporters. We have social events throughout the year and a great camaraderie exists amongst our members.
We organise two races a year, a 5 Mile Multi Terrain Race at Porthkerry Park and a Relay Race at Cosmeston Country Lakes. These races are well attended and are marshalled by our club members.
Please contact us either via our Facebook page or the link below (?) if you have any questions or just come to two sessions to try us out.
* Our sessions are suitable for anyone who can run a continuous 5K.
* We are happy for 16 to 18 year olds to join but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
