Formed in 1982 by a group of runners as a result of the first Sheffield Marathon, the club now has well over 200 members. How to join>> The club holds weekly training sessions at venues across Sheffield. It also organises a full programme of club events each year including the 10km Championship Race, the X-country Championship Race, the Road Race Championships, the Fell Race Championships, the Long Distance Strider, the Steel City Mile, the Sheffield Way Relay, the Dronfield Way Relay, the Curry Run and New Year's Eve Training Run.

Qualified coaches within the club ......posted 13th April 2013
In early march a group of club members attended a ‘leadership in running fitness’ course which is organised by England Athletics. This means that we now have more than 10 trained coaches and leaders within the club. The newly qualified leaders are Phil Howson, Alistair Lawson, Pete Lusby, Tom Nuggent, Kevin Rains, Tristan Swain and Louis Wood. Look out for them on your training sessions.
Gun time of chip time
Following some confusion on this matter it should be noted that chip times aren't the official times so they don't count for records; they are just there for the runner's own benefit and interest. The official race time is the gun time. With that in mind the places and points for each event in the Road Race Championships and the Fell Race Championships are decided on the gun times and positions. Similarly club records should be the gun times.
How to contact the club
For enquiries regarding membership and attending a training venue Louis Wood. See also the club Membership Form for more details. For other enquiries contact the club secretary Norma Parkes. Alternatively just turn up at one of the training venues and join us for a run. See details of weekly training venues>>
