Savvy Park Runrz, a running club for all.
We are a newly England Athletics affiliated club; who are a group of runners of all abilities and experiences, who came together to have fun, support and encourage one another and feel better about ourselves both physically and mentally… as well as raising money for charity along the way.
A bit about us
We are a running club based in Savile Park, Castleford, with a rich history at the heart of it.
We are much more than just a running club; we are working hard to to help improve the health and well-being of the local community as well develop the park for fellow users.
We have weekly runs, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then let us know and we will support and get you up to speed (Couch to 5k) – whether that’s as a snail or a strider… “our philosophy is no matter how slow you go you are lapping those on the couch“… we are here to help you find the confidence… you have made the first stride and visited this page! 👍
We hold our runs on a Monday evening, but will review this over the coming weeks. Monday is ‘Motivational Monday’… it will help new runners and existing runners get back in to the stride. We have avoided Thursday, as we know our friends the Methley Striders run on that day.
If rambling is more your thing we are looking to link in with a local walking group.
We are a members club, with the aim to keep costs down at an affordable level, with money
reinvested back in to the club. However, this year due to receiving funding to support the club, we have made the decision to proudly support MND Association, by wearing their logo on our club vests and donating the profits to the worthwhile cause! 🙂 To find out more about the membership click here.
Join the team
Our aim is to have Lead Runners and Coaches in place that are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds, but who are all ultimately kind, committed and inspirational. If that is something you have experience of, or want to get involved further with the club please speak with one of the team. #Togetherwearestronger
