‘They’ll be too fast’; ‘Much better than me’; ‘I’ll get left behind’;
‘I’ll join when I improve’
Most clubs will welcome you with open arms no matter what your ability is. The club members and volunteers in the club will only want to help you and that may just be to stay motivated and keep active.
There are many benefits to joining a running club, not least the £2 discount on every UKA race you enter. It’s a social thing, you can work on your running technique and you can improve with the right help from the run leaders and coaches. You also benefit from UKA insurance as an athlete and from the many discounts offered by local running shops, ours is Yorkshire Runner in Otley, and other partners of UKA.
You may just want the benefits from afar and we welcome anyone to join the 12 in 12 club wherever they live. We are always only a shout away if you need any kind of support.
The on the ground 12 in 12 running club meets every Tuesday evening at 18.30 in the car park at Yeadon Dam/Tarn off the High Street near the Little Fisherman, LS19. This session is for all levels of ability and lasts 1 hour. Please feel free to come along and join us there is no obligation to join the club.
Happy Running from The Tesseycoaches
