Next Monday I’m attending the first meeting to set up a new running club in the South Wales Valley’s (Ogmore Vale / Nantymoel to be precise). Our nearest clubs are Brackla Harriers and Bridgend AC which are 8-10 miles away. Obviously it’s in the extremely early stages and initially I think the plan is just to see how many turn up to the open meeting, arranging to train together, and entering some races together. We have about 40 people interested but we’ll see how many actually turn up. The plan is to take it further and become an official club in the future if enough people are genuinely interested and willing to help out.
Just wondering if anyone has any advice for us in our longer term goal of establishing an ‘official running club’. I also have a few questions…
There’s probably loads more questions which I’ll post when I think of them. Would be really helpful if anyone could advise so we can establish from the outset if setting up an official club is realistic or not.
If anyone reading this lives locally and would like to attend – the meeting is at the Berwyn Centre, Nantymoel at 6.30pm on Monday 20th August. Also would be great if there’s any Brackla Harriers / Bridgend AC members that would like to attend and offer their expertise / suggestions.
