Welcome to Forfar Road Runners
Forfar Road Runners exists to provide a framework for runners of all abilities to realise their own personal goals and achieve their full potential as athletes, through encouragement, companionship and enjoyment. The club meets twice a week and informally at other times for training runs as well as local and national competitions.
Forfar Road Runners welcomes runners of all abilities to join them in training. Monday nights are typically speedwork. This is a great starting point for completely new runners because everyone works at their own pace and can take rests when needed whilst still being close within the group training. Wednesday nights – winter runs are longer steady runs in the town, 6.2 miles with options for longer runs for those who want to add loops or short cuts for those building up their mileage. In Summer the routes are out of town and can be up to 9 miles but usually have options for people to do shorter routes. We have a good variety of abilities and you will find that there is always someone who will keep new runners company on their runs.
Running in groups provides safety, companionship, motivation and guidance for those unfamiliar with the streets of Forfar and the surrounding area.
We look forward to having you run with us!
