When do we train?
We train Every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:30pm. Some members then join in the fun on Saturday morning Parkrun on the seafront, and there’s also, the Sunday morning long run for the ‘Chatty Social Members’ and the dedicated elites.
Where do we train?
We meet for training at Porthcawl Rugby Club (CF36 3DA). Then, depending on your ability, we follow a number of routes around the Porthcawl area. We try and make the routes as scenic and varied whenever possible.
Can I just turn up?
If you are over the age of 16 years old, we welcome New members of all abilities. We now have over 15 dedicated coaches that are there to help. If you have never run before, we offer a Couch to 5k training programme every couple of months. The best advice is turn up and speak to one of our friendly coaches, who can assess your individual needs. You DO NOT need to join Porthcawl Runners in the first instance. Come and see who we are, come and run with us, come and chat with us. You are more than welcome to try before you buy. It’s a members club, run by the members, for the members.
I’ve never run before?
If you have never run before but want to, our club is a great way to get started. If you would like to join our Couch to 5k sessions fill in the contact form below and we will send you the details.
