Welcome to Yeovil Town Road Running Club
We are a friendly running club, with members of all abilities from serious Club athletes wishing to improve to beginners and those returning to running. The Club is not just a road running club but it takes part in cross country and multi terrain events and more recently some of our members have undertaken night races.
Club night is Tuesday when we meet up at 6.15 p.m. at Yeovil Town Football Club (Goldenstones, if Yeovil Town are playing at home). Run leaders take out various groups at distances and pace to suit all members. No-one gets left behind.
On a Wednesday evening, there is hill training. On a Thursday evening, there is a Pub Run and on Friday evening, there is speed training at the Whistlecroft Sports Arena in Yeovil. Longer training runs take place at weekends.
The Club organises several local events including the six-race summer 5k series from Yeovilton.
It is with great sadness that I have to report the sudden and untimely death of James New, a Club Member since 2014. He was a valued member of the Club and ran in the green and white vest on several occasions. A card and letter of condolence will be sent to his wife and the Club will be represented at his funeral.
Malcolm Maxted, Chairman YTRRC
Club runners take part in races most weekends, which are usually in Somerset and Dorset but in some instances much further afield, occasionally in another country!
There are Club competitions including the Club Championship and the King and Queen Points championship, and caps ranging from “Mini Slam to Ultra Slam” are awarded at the Annual Dinner to those who have completed races of specified distances during the preceding year.
Please come to join us on a few Tuesday Club, nights or any other Club Run to find out more about us before formally joining the Club. Simply turn up and find Phil our Run Co-ordinator who will introduce you to the group you wish to join that evening. We look forward to welcoming you to Yeovil Town Road Running Club.
