A running and multisport club based in Cardiff, Wales. Affiliated to Welsh Athletics, Welsh Triathlon and Cycling Time Trials. We have a wide range of members who run at anything from 5 to 12 minute miling in road races, cross country and multi-terrain competitions, as well as a contingent of triathletes and cyclists. The aim of the club is to have fun, feel healthy and achieve personal goals.

Tuesday nights - speed / interval work
We run a Tuesday night speed or interval session, sometimes on the outdoor track at Cardiff International Sports Stadium at Leckwith, at the indoor track at UWIC Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Cyncoed Road campus, or just around some convenient loop in Roath or Cathays. These start at 7:30pm; but it is best to check on our website to see where we will be each night. The list is shown above and also on our Facebook group page.
Thursday nights - social run
Thursday nights are from Penylan Community Centre for runs ranging from 3-4 miles to the odd 10 to 12 miler. We meet at about 6:50 pm (run starts at 7pm) and there will always be someone willing to run at your pace. The routes generally involve running past Roath Park lake at some point but we do vary the routes and distances to suit who's there on the night.
Saturday mornings - parkrun
You will usually find a few of us at the local parkrun events - Cardiff Blackweir, Grangemoor, Newport and Barry Island. They all start at 9am, see www.parkrun.org.uk for details.
It's always best to come along and run with us a few times before joining. The aim of the club is to have fun, feel healthy and achieve personal goals whilst also enjoying the benefits of training with a club. If you want to become a member then the cost is £30 per year (the year runs from 1st April to 31st March) and includes mandatory membership of Welsh Athletics (£17.50 included). We also provide a discounted price of £17.50 per year for students and the unemployed. For details of the membership benefits of Welsh athletics see the WA page here.
As a member you will need to purchase a club running vest, these are available in both men's and ladies sizes (from S to XL) at a subsidised cost of £10 for your first one and £15 for each one thereafter. A downloadable membership form is available here.
