About us


We were founded in March 2010 and we serve an area, which includes the town of Porthcawl and the villages of Cornelly, Pyle and Kenfig Hill. The catchment area has a combined population of over 25,000. We cater for road running, cross-country and track and field events  from beginners to elite and we offer a warm welcome to newcomers and holidaymakers.

We have two main roles: –

1.  Helping our Community to improve its Health, Social Well being and Quality of Life.

2.  Developing our Membership such that they may achieve their Personal Goals and/or become Competitive Athletes.

We provide our members with the opportunity of enhancing their health, fitness, running and social life.
