We are probably the largest running club in Cornwall and have about 200 active members. The Club was founded in 1995 and began with just a handful of runners who were mostly men. Over the years the Club has grown strongly and our main run at 7pm on a Tuesday night at Hayle Rugby Club (behind M+S) now attracts more than 100 runners. Comfortably more than half the members are now women, with many in the 21-35 age group.
But we also have many members over 60 (who include some of our fastest) and our youngest member is 19 (excluding the Junior Club). We come from all walks of life, from doctors and nurses to postmen and farmers, office workers, police officers, hoteliers, teachers, secretaries, students, surfers and the busy retired.
We run in groups, depending on speed and mood on the night (very important). We promise we will have a group which will suit you. Our slowest group is the walk and run group and our fastest is the elite where runners would expect to train at about 6 – 6.30 min miles and race faster (depending on distance).
