Calder Valley Fell Runners
Calder Valley Fell Runners celebrated its 30th year in 2016 and we have come a long way since a small band of renegade runners shared a pint and chatted about creating a club dedicated to their fondness of running on the open fell. Last year one of our senior members was selected to run for Yorkshire and Great Britain. As well as these individual achievements, our club has enjoyed national success for our men's, lady's and veteran's teams, as well as a string of victories in relay events; all testimony to the team ethos that our club embodies.
With a base in Mytholmroyd, we meet every Tuesday for pack runs and specific training sessions, with lots of other social runs, training sessions and recces organised by individual members. Whatever your level, there is always a group you can run with or a session you can benefit from. We are NOT an elite club for fast runners only but do have some elite members. We also attracts triathletes, adventures racers, mountain bikers, road cyclists and climbers who enjoy the craic of running or racing with others. We really believe in putting something back into the sport we enjoy and organise a number of races each year, from the fantastic Coiners 7 miler in May to the twenty mile epic "Bernard Pierce Wadsworth Trog" in the depths of winter. Away from the racing scene, we have a growing number of club members who have successfully completed the "Bob Graham Round" as well as other similar personal challenges.
With distinctive red and white hoops and the ram's head logo, our vest is recognisable throughout the country as not just one of the country's top fell running clubs, but also one of its most sociable and well run. With a membership of over two hundred members and a flourishing junior section, our club caters for and welcomes all standards of runners of all ages from steady runners to international racers.
