We are based at the Baildon Rugby & Cricket Sports Club on Jenny Lane, Baildon. 

We meet on Thursdays at 7pm at the cricket pavilion for our main club run.  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 bar.

We train on Saturdays at 10am at Titus Salt School car park, Higher Coach Road - for beginners and Improvers

We also train on Tuesdays at 6.30pm, meeting at the car park on Jenny Lane. Our sessions include speed work, circuits, hill reps, track work at UAK on the first Tuesday of the month and more!e Meeting

Run Baildon - Beginners & Improvers Group

Whatever the weather... it’s always time to get running

...but often the hardest part of all is knowing how to get started and joining a running club can be a daunting prospect for many. This is why we have set up a group aimed specifically at the complete beginner, those relatively new to running, those who want to get fitter and those who want to get back into running.

 

Why should I run?

Running is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to get and stay fit. It offers many benefits such as improved health, weight loss, increased energy and better sleep. After getting started and as your running fitness increases you may even be inspired and motivated to join one of the many popular mass participation charity runs such as the "Race For Life", "Race For All", Great North Run or perhaps even the London marathon! We have helped beginners achieve all of these goals but many just run for enjoyment and fitness.

 

If you already jog or run then you will realise the benefits of running with a group – it’s easier, more fun and a good way to make new friends. There is even a café for post run refreshment too - some of them spend longer in here that they do running!

 

Where and when do we meet?

We run in and around Roberts Park in Baildon where we have a safe and traffic free environment including the park itself, canal towpath, a scenic riverbank trail and woods

 

Sessions take place every Saturday morning at 10am. Our meeting point is the free public car park with the round turning circle which is on the right as you travel from Baildon/Shipley after Thompson Lane and just before Titus Salt school on Higher Coach Road, Baildon, BD17 5RH. If you can't find us we'll probably be in the park.

 

Why Us?

We are an established group led by fully qualified coaches and leaders registered with Run England. Come along and talk to those who’ve already seen the benefits of running with us. We have no upfront charges and allow you to run with no obligation to join until you are sure that we are right for you. When you want to commit you will find that membership brings lots of benefits. If you don't like us we'll help you find other clubs and groups in the area.

 

Ready?

Just turn up for one or more no-obligation introductory session, or for further information please email baildonrunners@yahoo.co.uk
