Saturdays 10:00am. Baildon Runners Absolute Beginners Group.
We meet at the free public car park with the round turning circle just before Titus Salt school on Higher Coach Road, Baildon (BD17 5RH is the nearest postcode).
Aimed at the complete beginner and those relatively new to running (but all are welcome to attend!). Sessions last for one hour (we don't run all the time!) and are based in and around Roberts Park, the canal towpath and riverbank trail. Free car parking, café and toilet facilities. Contact for further information or just turn up! Also see our "Run Baildon" page.
Tuesdays 6:30pm. Improve Your Running (Structured training)
Meet at the car park at the corner of Heygate Lane and Jenny Lane near the Baildon Rugby & Cricket Sports Club, Jenny Lane, Baildon
Sessions last one hour and are suitable for all abilities. In winter we are on road and in summer off road. These sessions are based on interval training and quite often on hills. Once a month (the first Tuesday) we typically use the running track at the University Academy in Keighley for some flat interval running. All sessions are adapted and suitable for everyone.
Thursdays 7:00pm. Main club night (group running)
Meet at Baildon Rugby & Cricket Sports Club, Jenny Lane, Baildon
A social night with the emphasis on enjoying running in groups - we divide into different running groups, each with a designated leader, according to ability. The separate groups regularly re-group to ensure that nobody is left behind.
In summer we generally run off-road over the moors. In winter we keep to well-lit pavement routes (please wear high-viz clothing). Showering and changing facilities are available, free of charge, on Thursdays.
