Hi,

Does anyone know of any running clubs in the Rossendale area?

I am a beginner so would appreciate clubs that accomodate that.

Cheers in advance

Hi Latix - welcome to Rossendale Online...

I suppose the obvious one would be the Rossendale Harriers Athletic Club based at Marl Pits Sports Centre...

From their website,

For first time runners or people wanting to get themselves fit or fitter we have our Monday night "First Steps to Fitness"

Yeah, Rossendale Harriers is a good-sized friendly club.

Club Training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday night at 7:00pm

The Monday night sessions are run by qualified running coaches who also take part in the Tuesday and Thursday night training sessions themselves.

I'd recommend you take part in the Monday night sessions for while (maybe even doing a couple of runs on your own during the week) and the coaches will be able to advise you if they think you'd benefit in doing the Tuesday/Thursday sessions. There is also no commitment required, whereas if you start attending the other sessions, you would be asked to join the club and pay annual membership.

Most training at this time of year is done on the roads. But in Summer there is the choice of Track, Roads or Fells.

Good luck.

Hi Latix

Are you training for anything in particular?
why have you decided that a running club is the way forward? they are usually good but you have to like running! have also heard many good things about the harriers!
Are you running much now?
