Pickering Running Club is a friendly vibrant group of 70+ runners from across the Ryedale area of North Yorkshire in the UK. It is a twin-based club with a club house in Malton as well as in Pickering. Weekly club training runs take place on Thursday evenings at 7:15pm and Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm, and the venue generally alternates between the vicinities of Pickering and Malton.
Anyone looking for a sociable environment in which to improve their running, or even get into the local fell and road racing scene, is welcome to come along to any of these training runs, or to contact us for more information. Please also refer to the testimonials page if you have concerns about keeping up with the pace.
The club meets at 7:00pm (to set off running at 7:15pm prompt) for our Thursday training run all year round, come rain or shine. The precise venue and nature of the run is published in advance on this site on the Runs List page. We invariably stop for a drink afterwards so join us if you can.
Some members also run on a less formal basis on a Tuesday night at 6:30pm, usually off-road.
Over the summer months, the emphasis is on enjoying the local Yorkshire countryside which we are fortunate to have close at hand. Over the winter, runs are held in Pickering and Malton but varied by the use of speed and hill work.
Training runs are structured to ensure that all runners enjoy the session with slower runners being encouraged and quicker runners being pushed to achieve their potential. The safety of members is paramount with high visibility clothing being worn when required and all members being accounted for at the completion of a training session.
If you fancy giving this a go, just turn up and we promise to give you a warm welcome. And we guarantee to ensure you are not left behind. See the How To Join page for further details.
