We are and always will be a FREE running group, but members are welcome to affiliate to our club – for more details on affiliation please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We run the club voluntarily – we do not profit from helping others improve their running goals.
We have 3 British Athletic qualified Coaches, 15 qualified and insured Run Leaders accredited by England Athletics, plus 5 Running Ambassadors and a Mental Health Ambassador. We have 2 qualified Guide Runners for the partially sighted and a “signing” interpreter for supporting the deaf.
We have trained complete beginners to become competent runners completing in various races.
We are social, local and fully support our local community and partner with local businesses.
We have a dedicated members page on Facebook to share progress and tap in to the support of other members. We also post our weekly session plans there – just type “Farsley Flyers Members” in the search bar of Facebook.
We are recognised on ParkRun – add Farsley Flyers as your running club.
Our members also record their triumphs on Strava – just search running club “Farsley Flyers”. Support your peers and share local routes.
Our birthday is 12th February and each year we hold an annual party celebrating our successes, giving out fun prizes, medals and trophies.
We also host a variety of other social events throughout the year. BBQ’s, meals out, pub quizzes, etc. Check the SOCIAL EVENTS page.
Farsley Flyers are now a race organiser and in partnership with Country Trail hosted our first trail run in 2017 and we have more in the pipeline for 2019 – see Facebook for more details.
New for 2018, Farsley Flyers will be holding a club championship which is free to all members. This covers many local events from Park Runs, 10k’s and half marathons. This works on a point collection system so suitable for all abilities. We will be rolling this out again in 2019 due to it’s success.
