Our ethos is fun, fitness and friendship, in whatever order you like!
Egerton Running and Cycling Club originally began in 2009 as Greensand Way Joggers. We started with meeting for a run on Sunday mornings. The group has grown and gradually developed and now has a home at Egerton Sports Pavilion in the heart of the village. For a small club (about 60 members) we have a full fitness calendar ( Activities Menu ) with regular runs, cycle rides and other fitness activities throughout the week including Circuit sessions and yoga.
We go to local running meets (anything from 5K to ultra-marathons) and support each other in training for these events. We have completed challenges such as The Dirty Dash, "It's-a- Knockout" and innumerable charity cycle rides. We also run regular Couch to 5K programs for new or returning runners.
We have three England Athletics qualified coaches (CiRF) and a Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF) Coaches are qualified to support people of all abilities, are DBS checked and qualified in First Aid for Sport.
We have a growing cycling membership and have completed innumerable sportives, challenges and races (Coast to Coast, Prudential 100, Castles 100 etc)
We give a friendly welcome to new members who are welcome to join us for a couple of sessions prior to committing to membership. If you would rather come along and chat about the club to see if it will be a good fit for you, please pop along to any of our regular sessions.
