Torfaen Triathlon Club

Welcome to Pont-y-pwl & District Runners - Torfaen's newest club for people who love to run.

We meet at 7pm - every Tuesday and Thursday at Pontypool Active Living Centre, Torfaen - to run together over various distances and terrains.

From complete beginners to seasoned, 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.

New Beginners Group - First Steps - meet every Monday at 6.30pm. Relaxed and informal introduction to running. Structured training programmes offered to suit all abilities.

"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)
