About Us

Porthcawl Runners is a volunteer-run running club affiliated to Welsh Athletics, the national governing body of athletics in Wales.

We have two main roles:

  • Helping our Community to improve its health, social wellbeing and quality of life in line with NHS ‘Live Well’ advice
  • Developing our Members to help them achieve their personal goals, and supporting them if they wish to become competitive athletes.

Porthcawl Runners was founded in 2010 and welcomes runners of all abilities of 16 years and over, from elite experienced runners to those new to running. We also welcome members to our Walking Group. The Club helps to improve the physical and mental health of members, their fitness and confidence, and provides an opportunity to make new friends and enjoy the social side of the Club!

We provide a fun, social, non-competitive environment, but our dedicated Welsh Athletics coaches and Run Leaders can also assist individuals to achieve their personal goals and are instrumental in improving team performances. We cater for road running and cross country/trail athletes of all abilities.

Porthcawl Runners meet every Monday and Wednesday at 6.30pm. Our base is Porthcawl Rugby Club, South Road and our varied running routes take advantage of the beautiful countryside around us and the unrivalled beauty of the heritage coast.
