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.

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.
