Welcome to Easingwold Running Club


We are pleased to announce that, despite the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we are now able to accept new members and process membership renewals. For current members, the expiry date for your membership has been moved to 30 April 2021 and you will be able to renew from 28 days before.

We are currently running in small groups and holding some virtual competitions. Please be aware our usual competitions or social events are not taking place as normal.

Formed in 1995, by a group of like-minded runners, we are a friendly, local club that caters for all ages and abilities. We run in and around the market town of Easingwold in North Yorkshire, which is located between York and Thirsk.

The Club meets on Thursday evenings at 6.50pm at the Galtres Centre (YO61 3AD) on the edge of Market Square. During the lighter months we have regular away evenings in other locations, followed by a visit to a local pub.

​Membership is open to runners over 18 and junior family members over 11. All abilities are welcome from beginner to advanced, although ideally you need to be able to jog for around 30 minutes to participate in club sessions.

​Make sure you read our Frequently Asked Questions before joining.

There is no need to be a particularly fast runner and there is no obligation to turn up every week. Many of us have work and family committments and participate when we can. We will give you lots of support to become a better runner and keep fit as well as giving you the chance to meet new people.

Here are some of the many benefits of joining us. Please be aware that some events may not take place or may be altered due to COVID restrictions:

  • The option to join a 20 race Club Championship with a variety of distances, challenges and terrains. 
  • An affiliation to the York and District Summer Road League which allows members to compete in 7 fantastic local 10k races.
  • Your name in the hat for the club's allocated London Marathon place. Preference is given to first time London runners.
  • The chance to join in many of the great social events throughout the year as well as post run club night drinks in the Galtres Centre most Thursdays.
  • The chance to come to our Annual Christmas Dinner in December and presentation evening in September.
  • The opportunity to get involved in the local community, supporting our events, maybe marshalling some organised races and events - it's good fun.
  • Affilliation to England Athletics and discounted entry of around £2 to most open races. Please be aware that it may take some time for your EA registration to be processed and for you to receive your number after you join.
  • 10% discount at some running shops and online stores

Try us out first

If you don't feel like you want to make the commitment to join yet, then why not try us out? You can join us on a Thursday night to see if the club is for you. Training sessions are occasionally moved to accommodate races or sometimes we meet away from Easingwold.

If you think you might like to join us, please feel free to contact us to find out the answer any questions you may have and the best times to come and try out our club nights.
