Whether you're 25 and want to stay fit, or 52 and still looking for faster 10K times, the TROTs can help you to achieve your personal running goals.
We are a small but thriving club based in St Clears, West Wales with around 60 members from all parts of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.
The club is proud to include several Welsh international road runners, as well as many others who simply enjoy training in good company on the quiet lanes around St Clears!
Some club members run a couple of miles once or twice a week. While others are aiming for a marathon PB. Some take part in club training sessions every Tuesday and Thursday night. Others simply run for the TROTs in occasional races. Either way, membership of an established running club offers many benefits:
Most new members give the club a try first at one of our Thursday night training sessions - we meet at 7 pm on the ground floor of the Leisure Centre in Station Road, St Clears.
Runners go out in small groups covering between 3-8 miles typically (or do speed work on the field or hills in winter). Showers and changing facilities are available (a contribution of a pound is requested). There is a short meeting at around 8.45 to discuss recent race results and club news. The session finishes at 9.00 pm.
New runners are welcome to simply turn up one Thursday evening for a chat and a quick run. Or you can contact us first using the form on our Contact Us page.
Welsh Athletics have recently changed the fee structure for affiliated clubs and runners. This means our standard annual membership is now £35, but this now includes running insurance (details available from Club Secretary) and automatic membership of Welsh Athletics.
The following discounts apply: Junior Membership (under 17) - £15, Social Membership - £20, Over 65 Membership - £25, Second Claim club membership - £15.
Membership fees and other income from the club are used for trophies, race organisation, insurance cover, use of the facilities at St Clears Leisure Centre, minibus hire, and support of a wide range of other club activities, such as the Castles Relay, Annual Tour, Awards Evening, etc.
The club accounts are presented in detail to club members at the AGM, which this year takes place on 9th Feb. All members are encouraged to participate actively in the 'running' of the club and help shape its future.
