Not sure whether I'm up for joining a club yet, but was wondering whether theirs any folk near me who run, I'm in the Ryhill area of Wakefield near Royston, Havercroft ?
I'm only at the 9 m/mile mark at the moment, but sometimes find it difficult to motivate myself, but when running with other folk find it more enjoyable.
Anyone nearby, or can recommend any clubs nearby, where I won't be out of my depth ?
Hello, uksoundz, I'm from Wakefield and do my running around Newmillerdam and Walton. I'm a bit too set in my ways to be a running companion, but can I put a word in for Ackworth Roadrunners when you're ready for a club: they're a very welcoming and friendly bunch, with runners at a full range of abilities where I'm sure your 9m/m will fit in. Not far away, and I think they even have a weekly training run at Wintersett. And if 5k is a suitable distance for you, Pontefract Parkrun is a smashing weekly event. It's a friendly, chatty occasion, with lots of regulars of all abilities, and plenty of newcomers each week. It's free and addictive. And having a race every Saturday is a great motivator.
I am Ryhill based and run 3 times a week.
9 min mile is about my level at the moment.
I run 3 times a week = 2 5k runs and a 10 or 11k run on a Sunday.
Would be great to have a running buddy for some of the runs.
10k is my main aim at the moment but I am flexible.

Sorry, just seen this (during a search for something else) & thus may be a bit behind the timesYes, 'Ackworth' do run round the Ryhill area, there's generally a 9-10 mile club run from the Anglers Country Park every Sunday morning, leaving the car-park @ 09:00
http://www.ackworthroadrunnersandac.co.uk/If you haven't already, get yourself over to the Co-Op at Ackworth (on roundabout at junction of Wakefield/Doncaster & Barnsley Roads) on Tuesday/Thursday evenings There's a shorter/slower group leaving@ 18;30, & a faster/more experienced group leaving @ 19:30 (that may split up, if people decide to do so)There are also 'Barnsley Harriers' & 'Barnsley AC' not too far away
Although I'll admit to being biased, as I'm a member of 'Ackworth'If you need further help/assistance, please come back to me
Hello - I'm a runner in Ryhill and go out most days along the nearby (muddy) trails with my dog doing between 3 to 6 steady miles. Does anyone know of running groups in the area dedicated to trail running where dogs are welcome or is there anyone out there who would fancy joining us, thanks
