  • Unlike most sports clubs we do not have a fixed weekly meeting point, but instead organise events on a regular basis around the area. See the Events page for details.
  • Walkers, joggers and runners of all ages 5 - 85 years are invited to explore our local woods and parks. We offer help and guidance on how to read maps and use a compass and electronic timer for newcomers at each event.
  • To see a short video explaining what the sport involves, have a look at the Beginners page.
