I've just moved to Caephilly and I'm looking for running clubs etc. Did you find any? I am running half marathon distance every weekend at the moment. Pace a little slower than your's though although I'm only just starting out.
Let me know?
Hi missed this one........the first time around
there isn't a club in caerphilly itself.......the only one in the borough is Islwyn which meets at Pontllanfraith Leisure centre on tuesday and thursdays evenings and sunday mornings usually......
nearby you will also find the Pontypridd rodents that meet near pontypridd and a couple of clubs in Cardiff.......san Domenico and les croupiers but i don't know where they meet.....
Thursday evenings at 7 o'clock from LLandaff rugby club just 1 min down the road from the parkrun, thats where Les croupiers meet, sure you would be most wellcome.
I live in Caerphilly and I've been in touch with the Welsh Athletics Association and Caerphilly doesn't have a running club but they are sending me information and the relevant forms that would be needed to form a club.
If I can get enough people (min.10) who would be interested in forming an official club in Caerphilly I will get it up and running.
Ive run a 5 halfs at around 2 hours 10 ( slow but steady!) Im now training for a full end of April, let me know how you get on with starting a club
clare there are loads of ladies joined islwyn running club in the last few weeks.......if you can make tuesaday or thursday nights you would be welcomed
Hi, there is a running club on Tuesday and Thursday at six, from the Village Hotel Coryton, you don't have to be a member, and there a really friendly bunch, they also run one morning over the weekend.
I live in Caerphilly, and don't run much here, as I lack motivation, so if anyone is doing short runs, and fancies some company, or knows someone who does, then please get in touch.
I live in Caerphilly and run once a week (typically Sat / Sun mornings), I generally run arround taffs trail / up and over caerhilly mountain and depending on mood can clock up between 8 - 12 miles.
I've got a couple of halfs scheduled for the end of the year + tough mudder in Usk.
If any one is interested in joining me please let me know. (medium pace)
Following the success of the Caerphilly 10k over the past two years, I am keen to establish a new running club in Caerphilly. I know we have the established clubs like Islwyn in Blackwood and many others in Cardiff but there are some great areas to run in Caerphilly, a real mix of trails, road and Fell. I am particularly keen to reserve one session of the week for beginners. Thoughts so far include:
Tues and Thurs evening club meets
Wednesday - beginners
Sat morning - Park Run
Sunday - Events
Please get in touch if you're interested.
Maybe it's worth bucking the trend of Tues & Thurs runs?
Which Park Run are you thinking of? Is there one planned for Caerphilly? I thought there was one to be honest, but can't see it on the site.
caerphilly council can't get it off the ground....
I was thinking of the Cardiff Park Run or maybe Pontypridd Park Run. I'm not sure what suitable venues there are in Caerphilly to start a Park Run?
The rational for Tues and Thurs is to cater for weekend competing.
they are looking at Penallta.. Roadrunner
Thanks Seren nos. I know it well. I wasn't aware that the local authority were responsible for setting it up. My knowledge of Cardiff Park run is that the council had little input. It used to be a volunteer organised event with a start up cost (perhaps that's where the local authority come in). It would be good to get it going up there. Do you know if anyone is driving this forward?
roadrunner.the coucil will put yp the money..the problem is they need a race director to take it forward........they tried with a group of students from Glam.but none of them had run or volunteered at park run and when the practice days came up only 3 turned up and they had no idea.......
There seems to be aproblem wuth getting a 5k route as well..
Islwyn running club were happy to help marshall but didn't want to take on race director and no one from the council wanted to do it.......so earlier this year it hit a stop again......
if someone or two are willing to do race director then I'm sure it could be started
Hi . I do the Newport parkrun every Sat and enjoy it but can't get there during the week so if someone is setting up a local club that also caters for beginners I would be interested.
Roadrunner389 please let me know if there are any further developments.
