We’re a road running, cross-country and junior track-and-field club based in Selby. Based at the Selby Rugby Club (click here for directions) our club runs set off at 6.30 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the year, with a 10km run on Tuesday evening, and a 10km and a 6km run on a Thursday evening.
Whether you’re old or young, fit or floppy, you’ve been running your whole life or have just taken it up, and whether you’re a hare or a tortoise, we’d love you to join us. We run at paces from 6 minute miles to 10 minute miles and anything in between, no-one gets left behind, and we regroup a couple of times during each run to make sure everyone’s okay.
Even if you’re completely new to running we’d be delighted to to hear from you and to guide you on the best way to get off the couch and on your way to a 5k at somewhere like parkrun – once that’s cracked, then you’re more than capable of joining us on our shorter runs, and before too long you’ll be able to tackle the longer runs too.
We’re a friendly and sociable bunch, so the best way to get started is to get in touch with us, and there are plenty of ways to do that. Track down the club’s group on Facebook, ping us a message through the site, come along to one of the Get Running Selby sessions which the club runs weekly, email any of the people whose email addresses are shown at the foot of this page, or just come down to the club at 6.30 pm on a Tuesday or a Thursday night (armed with your trainers and a smile) to say hello and come out for a run with us.
And if you decide you like us, then you can apply to become a member of our club – at just £20.00 / year for adults, subscriptions are great value, particularly given the host of discounts that entitles you to from national retailers – on top of that there’s a host of club events throughout the year, it gets you access to two local race leagues, and you get at least £2.00 off entry to all England Athletics sanctioned events. How does that sound?
