Membership Details

Why join a running club? The answer is easy! A running club is a fantastic place to draw inspiration from others, to share top tips, to sympathise about aches and pains, and to mix with people from all walks of life.

Here at Nidd Valley we have a huge array of people of different ages and abilities. We have people who don’ t want to compete through to those who race ultra marathons. We have those who love pounding the pavements, and those who want nothing more than so dash through muddy fields.

We would ask that when considering joining us you are able to complete a parkrun (5KM) in 36 minutes or less so that you can run on a social night with one of our paced groups comfortably. Ideally (although not essential) you would be able to run (albeit with a few stops) for 5 or so miles to make sure that you could take part in most of the club social runs we do and get the most out of your club membership.

New runners are welcome to come and try us out on the 1st Thursday of every month. Just let us know you are coming on Thursday 6th January 2022. The next new runner nights will be held on , Thursday 3rd February 2022 and Thursday 3rd March 2022.

Joining a club gives you chance to swap ideas, talk nutrition, hear about smaller local races and more importantly give you the push to get out and running when your head is telling you to stay indoors.

In Harrogate there are a number of other options to satisfy your running urges. Every weekday morning the Early Bird Run Crew meet at the cenotaph to run a variety of 5k routes. There is also a Knaresborough version too. Every Monday night at 6:30pm our local independant running shop Up&Running organise their Social Run Group. There is a Saturday offering of parkrun locally too. Harrogate, Conynham Hall, Fountains Abbey, Wetherby and Chevin Forest and to name just 5 close to or in Harrogate.

Its not all just about running either! Our members keep up their fitness by doing all sorts of different things – cycling, open water swimming – there’s always someone out there.

And of course an important part of exercise is rest…….with a lively social scene we often let our hair down and take refuelling very seriously indeed!

Don’t forget that you can come along a few times just to see if it’s right for you before becoming a member but a word of caution, until you become a paid up member you will not be covered by the club’s insurance.

The hardest part of training is getting out there – this way it’s easier!!!
