Membership of the club is open to adults over the age of 18 who are already experienced runners.
The club runs on a variety of surfaces including forest trails, fire roads, unmade tracks and rough ground so the terrain is rugged, hilly, wet and often muddy. The aim of the club is to provide enjoyable yet challenging runs at a good steady pace without too many stops. As such, potential members should be capable of running at a steady pace for an hour on trails.
