Members new to running often choose a Road Race to first experience racing. The achievement of completing a race distance can progress to enjoying the speed and thrill of a fast road race, and striving to improve your personal bests.
Our Ladies’ Team Manager Angela Shian and Men’s Team Manager Jon Cleaver are always on hand to share experience, offer advice and encourage you to achieve your goals!
The major team events that we take part in are the Road Relays. These are an opportunity for club members to perform and test themselves as a team outside of the local “comfort zone”. We usually enter several teams to ensure that members of any ability are able to enjoy the challenge of these fantastic events.
So, please watch out for Facebook posts or contact your Team Manager if you want to run in any of the following:
Ladies’ Northern 6 Stage Road Relays (6 x 3 miles) on Sunday 26th March 2017.
Men’s Northern 12 Stage Road Relays (6 x 5 miles and 6 x 3 miles) on Sunday 26th March 2017.
