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

Winter League

The club competes in the West Yorkshire Winter League with 13 other local clubs. Each winter there are 6 races - each on a Sunday - over a distance between 4 and 5½ miles. The conditions are usually (very!) muddy. But everyone who does them has a good time and it’s all about taking part and competing with like minded runners from other local clubs. There is no cost to members personally because the league subscription fee is met from club funds.

 

The scoring is based on the first 7 men, of which 3 must be vets (35+), and first 4 ladies, of which 1 must be a vet (35+), from each club to finish. You get points according to your finishing position overall. Whilst there is only one race, there is separate scoring for men and ladies.

 

There is also a separate competition for veterans, known as vets for short (all runners over 35). The vets team is made up of the first 2 male vets to finish and the first lady vet finisher from each club.

 

Whilst you might think that you can’t be one of the first 7 Baildon Runners (men) or first 4 Baildon Runners (ladies) to finish, you might finish before the 7th male, or 4th lady, runner from another club. By doing so, the other club runner gets fewer points and this helps Baildon Runners to finish higher in the overall standings. So every club member, whatever their ability, can play their part.

 

If anyone is not a member of any of the clubs in the league but would like to take part they may do so  for a small fee of £3 per event payable on the day.

 

We meet at the Ian Clough car park at the times stated to car share. This allows anyone without their own transport to take an active part in these events. Supporters are also most welcome.
