Hi everyone,

I live in the centre of Caerphilly. Is there a running club nearby? I run two half marathons per year, Liverpool in March and Cardiff in October. My pb is 1hr 54.

I used to live in Newport and ran with friends, but now I live in Caerphilly I'm missing the buzz of running with others to train.

Hi Gareth,

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?

Cheers, Dougie

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.....

Hi Gareth,

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.

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.

Hi all,

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)
