Dronfield RC has recently added a 5 mile (8km) in 60 minute group to our wide ranging weekly training provision to provide a stepping stone for beginners, casual and improving runners into the world of club running.
It is hoped that this new group provides a route into Dronfield RC and we are encouraging anyone who may have previously felt a bit daunted about joining a running club to come and have a go.
We now provide a 5, 6, 7 & 8 mile group run on a Tuesday, speed sessions on a Wednesday and off road running on a Thursday, as well as regular social runs through the week and at varying times to provide a complete pathway for improvement in running fitness that is accessible to all.
There has never been a better time to join DRC - the club was formed to bring people back together after the Covid-19 lockdowns of 2020 and continues to grow in both numbers and provision for our members.
The new membership year has just got underway and with the summer months approaching fast, most of our runs now head off to enjoy the best of the stunning countryside right on our doorstep. We've also got lots of social and fun competition ongoing (with much more kicking off soon) and our vibrant and inclusive community is welcoming to absolutely everybody.
The club has invested around £1,000 this spring to bolster our England Athletics licensed run leader pool who are all experienced and knowledgeable runners who take great pride in looking after everyone in their groups.
Dronfield RC is home to a strong core of very competitive athletes who are regulars on podiums at races in the local area, right through to total beginners and absolutely everything in between. We place a lot of emphasis on being a welcoming home to anyone who wishes to run, at whatever level that may be with the clubs' focus on personal improvement and progression.
Membership of Dronfield RC is just £50 for the first year (with free club vest) and then £40 per year thereafter. Membership includes a raft of benefits including free access to lots of club races throughout the year and big discounts on race entries and running kit, making membership an absolute bargain!
We offer prospective members the opportunity to come along to a club run or two for free before joining - just get in touch via the contact form here so we can advise on specifics. There's also an FAQ page here.
So if you're a regular parkrunner, a couch to 5k graduate, a lone wolf, or just run a bit but never thought about joining a club, come and try out Dronfield Running Club!
