Pont-y-pwl & District Runners

Established 2011

From complete beginners to experienced runners

Pont-y-pwl & District Runners caters for anyone who has a passion to run and seeks the company of like-minded people to run with.

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first or if you’ve been running for twenty years… There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get.– You Just Run”.
John Bingham

Club Nights

Tuesday & Thursday – 7pm

We meet at every Tuesday and Thursday at Pontypool Active Living Centre, Torfaen – to run together over various distances and terrains.

There is also an additional group meeting at 6.30pm every Monday and Wednesday for a short run of around 5 miles; for all abilities, but predominently those transitioning from First Steps to Main Club nights.

First Steps

Monday & Wednesday – 6.30pm

First Steps is our free introductory running group at Pontypool Active Living Centre. Structured training programmes to suit complete beginners in a relaxed and informal introduction/return to running

Junior Section

Monday – 6.30pm

Our Junior Section was set up for under 12’s. We meet at Pontypool Park and train together whatever the weather. The Juniors enjoy exercising in a fun environment, lots of games but also technique skills – they love their Mo Farah ‘arms’ practice!

Free Wheelers

Friday – Midday

A new group catering for running with young children. We work to remove all barriers to improving fitness – and believe having young children is no reason not to run! Each session will be held in the beautiful setting of Pontypool Park.
