WE ARE A ROAD AND CROSS-COUNTRY RUNNING CLUB IN SELBY, NORTH YORKSHIRE

Based at Selby Rugby Club, our club runs set off at 18:30 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the year.

On Tuesday we run 10k, on Thursday a 10k or a 7k, all split into groups based on pace.

We also have early 5k runs (on Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and Wednesday speed/hills sessions on offer, as well as Saturday and Sunday long runs. There is something happening every single day of the week.

OUR REGULAR RUNS AND ROUTES

Our main training days have always been a Tuesday and a Thursday, but now there are runs every day of the week. In the winter months we run in and around the town, and in the summer months we disappear off into the countryside – see below for more information on the routes.

SUMMER ROUTES

WINTER ROUTES

THE WISTOW 10K

Our biggest event of the year sees 350 runners take to the roads around Wistow for a flat, fast, 10K race that’s organised by runners, for runners, and is consistently one of the region’s most popular events.

YORK & DISTRICT ROAD RACE LEAGUE

Taking place on alternate Tuesday evenings from April to July, this league sees members of numerous local running clubs compete across 7 very different 10K courses in and around the York area.

EAST YORKSHIRE CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

Winter Sundays see us up to our knees in mud tackling some gruelling cross-country races around the region in this incredibly popular inter-club league competition.

THINKING OF JOINING US?

We are a very friendly and sociable club, so the best way to get started on your running journey with us is to get in touch. Simply send us a message through the site, email any of the people who are shown at the foot of this page, or come down to the club on a Tuesday or Thursday night ready to say hello and come out for a run with us. You can run with us on three occasions before taking the the leap and becoming a member, but most people just need one!

👉WHO - I am Gary Oates, ‘made in Leeds’, now live in Carlton.  I’ve been running now for about 10 years after I had a bet with someone who said I couldn’t run a marathon, so had to prove them wrong. My winning bet was York marathon in 2014 & I’ve not looked back since.
👉JOB - I own a forklift truck company that buys and sells forklift trucks
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 FAMILY - I’m married to Sue and we have four great children. I have great support from them all especially when I’m doing the major marathons.  Sue doesn’t get mad too often when I’m buying so many trainers 🤣
🏃‍♂️FAVOURITE DISTANCE - I like them all whether it’s a park run or a marathon. I enjoy the company & have made so many great friends running with them.
💪BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT - It has to be me & Sue getting to Tokyo & doing the marathon.  How I got a place with only 9000 people from a round the world was lucky & was my fastest marathon and the most enjoyable one for me 
🏃‍♀️BEST RUNNING ADVICE - Do it now as you never know when it will end 
🤪BIGGEST ERROR - Not listening to Sue, or my running friends as they all tell me to start slow & I always go out too fast then die lol 😆
🎂CAKE - I don’t eat much cake but do like a bit of chocolate cake
🪴HOBBIES - I don’t have much time for other hobbies as running takes up lots of my time but I do have a season-ticket for Leeds United & try not to miss a game 💙💛🤍
