More about us

RUNNING

This is a fun group of runners of mixed ability who meet on Monday nights.

We have runners who just want to run at a gentle pace, through to some who are happy to push themselves, and all the levels in between.

Whichever pace you want to run at we have a group for you, so you never run alone.

The Chuggers
CYCLING

We have access to the club, its bar, social and changing areas.

We don’t compete, but we do cycle as groups
