The club participates in a variety of running activities. We have organised or participated in nearly every branch of running; road running, cross-country, triathlons, long distance footpath running, fell running, hash runs and orienteering. We also participate in club events such as the Frostbite Friendly League which takes place throughout the winter months and team events such as the Round Norfolk Relay in September.
The club championships form a key part of the club calendar. Extending over the whole year, it involves taking part in a variety of road and cross-country races. In addition to the club championship, we award a number of other club trophies at the annual Presentation Evening.
We hold social evenings on the first Thursday of each month at 8.00 pm at the Rowing Club, St Neots. This is a friendly and informal occasion where runners can catch up over a drink with news of both running and social events.
There are a number of social activities organized throughout the year including social runs during the summer months which follow a footpath route starting and finishing at a country pub, a summer barbecue, rounders match, club quiz and the annual Presentation Evening usually held in January.
If you would like to run with us for a few weeks before committing yourself to joining, you are welcome to come along to some of our training sessions.
