Running Clubs around Dewsbury / Huddersfield?

I'm looking for a running club around the area where I live (Mirfield West Yorkshire) and wondered if anyone could recommend anywhere.

I've run 2 marathons in the last 2 years but this summer I lost all motivation and now I'm desperate to get going again but would like to join a club for extra motivation.

Any suggestions welcome.......


  • There is loads around that way;
    Dewsbury Road Runners
    Meltham AC
    to name but a few

    Take a look at the NoEAA website for clubs in West Yorkshire.

    I can't tell you much about which are friendliest/ most accomodating but your best bet is to go down and visit a few and make your own mind up.
    Hope this helps.
  • Thanks Podro, I'll take a look at that website and then get round a few :)
  • If you join Dewsbury they compete in the same cross country league as us (Baildon). There are 5 races and it's great fun. You'll have to be quick though, starts soon!

    On the other hand if you're not bothered about XC then try as many clubs as possible and as Podro says there are loads. Then join the one you like the best. Most will lert you go out with them a few times before deciding.
  • Is that the Sport Direct league Ellie? I used to enjoy doing that but our club don't do it now. We do West Yorks instead.
  • It's the West Yorkshire Winter League run by Idle AC. Great fun.
