About Us

Our juniors started in June 2006. The aim is to encourage young people in the Calder Valley and surrounding areas to take part in the fun, healthy and active sport that is fell running. We are a thriving club with some of our juniors representing Yorkshire and England. English and British Championship medals have also been added to some of our junior runners palmares.

Whilst we would seek to encourage young people to compete, to learn to win and lose we always ensure that running and training with us is about having some fun. It is for all children regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and ability. Our intention is to get our runners competing against each other and runners from other clubs both locally and nationally through healthy competition.  The aim is to encourage effort as well as success. We have our own club competition which is open to all members with each age group catered for. At the end of this competition we have a presentation evening with games, fun and food. 

Your child’s well-being is paramount to us. All the sessions are overseen and co-ordinated by qualified coaches. They have the relevant qualifications and experience to take junior sessions and are all DBS checked. We fall under UKA’s umbrella and follow their guidance as to all rules and regulations. See the Welfare policy and other relevant information under Members/Guidelines on this website.
