About us…

Baildon Runners was formed in 1984 by a group of like minded joggers who enjoyed social running.  In the early days the emphasis was more on the social side of running.  Today with around 200 members the club is thriving which has enabled us to branch out into the more competitive side of running whilst still maintaining a fun social atmosphere within the club.

 

A warm welcome to all…

At Baildon Runners we pride ourselves on giving a warm and friendly welcome to all newcomers.  Everyone from complete beginners to experienced runners is equally welcome.  We believe there is something for everyone at the club.

 

When and where…

We are based at the Baildon Rugby & Cricket Sports Club on Jenny Lane where we meet each Thursday evening at 7:00pm.  This is our main club night. During the winter months we stick to well-lit pavement routes but at other times, when the light permits, we head ‘off road’ often across the scenic Baildon Moor.  The routes are planned so we all meet back at the Sports Club at approximately the same time.  Showers are available in the Cricket Pavilion and afterwards we unwind with a few drinks and food in the Sports Club bar.

 

We also meet on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings - please see our Training Sessions page for further details.

 

What’s in it for me?…

Lots of things.  For starters, the opportunity to train with a group of friendly people who will help and encourage you along the way whatever your level of fitness.  If you want to compete in races, there are ample opportunities to enter team events and represent Baildon Runners.  Our qualified coaches will be pleased to offer you practical advice and support whatever standard of fitness you have or wish to achieve. And we have the moor on our doorstep offering the best scenery and views in the area!

Let’s party…

OK, it’s not all about running.  We like to ‘let our hair down’ from time to time and we have a variety of social events which take place throughout the year, culminating in our Christmas party which is held at Baildon Golf Club.  This is a very popular event and is open to members and their guests.

 

Still interested?…
