POCKLINGTON RUNNERS would like you to join them on Wednesday evenings for Walk to Jog, Jog to Run activities at the Rugby Club in Pocklington. 6.30pm meet for a 6.45pm start.

During the darker months we run a circuit around town aswell as the more adventurous ones who take to the country lanes with headtorches and hi-viz wear.

We would like to invite you to join us as we believe running in groups is safer during the winter. Whether you are training for the London Marathon, The Snake Lane 10 in Pocklington or just want to get off your backsides rather than watching the television come and join us for nights of tea and biscuits or swift halves at the bar. We will also have quiz nights, supper nights and various running related training events to while away the winter months. All welcome.
