Pontypridd Roadents AC is a small but thriving running club based in Pontypridd. They have over 60 members from all parts of Rhonda Cynon Taff, Merthyr, Caerphilly and Bridgend. All members are encouraged to actively participate in the running of the club and in helping to shape its future.
Whilst they have runners of various standards, anyone new to running will need to be able to maintain a pace of around 8 to 9 minutes a mile for around 6 miles. This should enable the runner to keep up during the session. Every effort will be made to ensure any new runners are helped with the routes, but it cannot be guaranteed at every session. Any new members needing help and advice to improve their standard, can be offered a training session 1 hour before the main session; this is available on request only.
If you want to improve as a runner, with aims of improving your times, or fitness, or lose weight or just enjoy the social side of running, the Roadents are the club for you.
Don't be put off by thinking of joining an athletics club, just come along to one of our training sessions for a chat and if you have recently completed a race, hopefully you can be matched with other runners of your own ability. If you have never completed a race, don't worry, because there are runners of different abilities. There is no obligation to join straight away! Don't forget that every first Thursday of the month is curry night after the training."
