Mow Cop Runners was founded in May 2009 and is affiliated to England Athletics for
Road, Fell and Cross Country running. The club has grown rapidly and now has over
40 members, mainly from Mow Cop, Scholar Green, Kidsgrove, Biddulph, Congleton,
the northern Potteries and surrounding areas.
Every year we enter teams in the North Staffs Cross Country League and the British
Fell & Hill Running Relay Championships. Members are active in many local and national
races on all surfaces. Other members just run to keep fit or socially. We welcome
all runners to the club whether slower beginners, more experienced or super fast!
Our main club run takes place on Tuesday evenings: 7.10pm for a 7.15pm start from
the COMMUNITY HALL, next to St. Thomas's church, near the MOW COP INN. There are
several groups from Beginners run/walking 2-3 miles, Intermediates running 4-5 miles
steady and Advanced running 6-8.5 miles faster.
We run on the road in winter and off road in the summer. Please come along and give
us a try.
The club would like to invite any new runners in the area to beginner sessions meeting
at the COMMUNITY HALL, next to St. Thomas's church, on Tuesdays at 7:10pm for a
7:15pm start. We will help you to build your confidence and mileage over the next
few weeks so please feel free to come along and give it a try! Please ask for Di
Lapworth on arrival.
