We were formed in 1986 when a group of like minded runners decided to form a club based in Mytholmroyd dedicated to the freedom of running on the fells. Over the years we’ve enjoyed our fair share of success both with individual and team fell running prizes and currently boast some of top fell running talent in the country within our ranks. However we cater for all talents and love to welcome new members.
With a base in Mytholmroyd, we meet every Tuesday for pack runs and specific training sessions, with lots of other social runs, training sessions and recces organised by individual members. Whatever your level, there is always a group you can run with or a session you can benefit from. Away from the fells it’s not all about running. Reflecting the diverse, creative nature of the special place known affectionately as #Calderfornia we make sure there’s plenty of time to catch up and let our hair down in each other’s company.
We are NOT an elite club for fast runners only but do have some elite members. We also attracts triathletes, adventures racers, mountain bikers, road cyclists and climbers who enjoy the craic of running or racing with others. We have some members who run just for pure enjoyment without ever competing.
We really believe in putting something back into the sport. We enjoy and organise a number of races each year, from the fantastic Coiners 7 miler in May to the twenty mile epic “Wadsworth Trog” in the depths of winter.
Away from the racing scene, we have a growing number of club members who have successfully completed the “Bob Graham Round” as well as other similar personal challenges.
With distinctive red and white hoops and the ram’s head logo, our vest is recognisable throughout the country as not just one of the country’s top fell running clubs, but also one of its most sociable and well run.
With a membership of over two hundred members and a flourishing junior section, our club caters for and welcomes all standards of runners of all ages from steady runners to international racers.
