Welcome to the Denby Dale Travellers running club. We are based at The Pie Hall on Wakefield Road in Denby Dale. Club training nights are Tuesday and Thursday  at 7pm with groups for all abilities, from age 16. If you are interested in running, either competitively or just to keep fit, why not pop down on one of these evenings. We would be very pleased to see you!

Travellers 6 Road Race

Sunday 21 December 2014 at 1pm

There will be around 65 entries available on the morning of the race from Race Registration, which will open at 11.30am in the Pie Hall.  

   Please note that results from the race should be available at the Pie Hall on the day. They will also be sent by e-mail to Clubs but will not be posted on this site until the New Year.


Junior Section to Launch Next April!

The Travellers plan to launch a junior section for young people aged 8 to 16 years, starting in April next year. Current plans are that the Junior Section would meet on Wednesday evenings using indoor and outdoor facilities at Shelley High School.  

   Plans to launch a Junior Section follow a unanimous decision at an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Club in July. A core group of Club members, led by Jo Worboys-Hodgson are now driving forward the Junior Section initiative with Club coaches and coaching assistants now developing their skills.

   West Yorkshire Sports and Kirklees Council are supporting the junior section initiative and local clubs are also lending a hand with help and advice. Further information about the Junior Section sessions will be available early in the New Year.

Thursday Evening Club Sessions

The Thursday evening sessions focus on building speed and stamina working as a group, so that runners of all ability are very much welcome

   These sessions are great for improving general fitness and preparing for autumn races. Why not come along and give one a try! Every Thursday, 7pm from the Pie Hall.
Over the past few weeks these sessions have proved very popular led by Claire Wilkinson. If you would like to get involved and help organize a session, please contact Claire.
