Local Running Clubs
Are you considering taking up running but have no idea where to start? The best source of support you could find would be a local running club. You will meet up and get to know other like-minded runners or runners-to-be in your area! Whether you want to run 5k or a marathon, you are much more likely to achieve your running goals if you join a running club.
I have compiled a list of running clubs nearby.
Banchory Running Club
Banchory Running Club is situated in Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. We cater for all runners and have members who can just about run 5km to accomplished marathoneers, and most of us who are somewhere between the two.
Deeside Runners is a running club based in Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. We cater for all runners and have members who just want to keep fit to top class athletes.
This group has been set up to enable like minded runners from Westhill and surrounding areas to meet up for adhoc runs to help with training for our local 10k and other organised events.
This group is not affiliated to any running club and all are welcome to join.
Jogscotland Hazlehead, voted “Best jogscotland Group of the Year 2015” is a friendly jogscotland group catering for all levels of ability. We meet at Hazlehead Park (top of the running track/end of Groats Road/old bus shelter) every Monday & Wednesday evening at 6.15pm, ready to run from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.
