Welcome to our running group

About our group
Vale of York is a social running group with a variety of runs which cater for all abilities.
All our sessions are free to supporting members of VOYAC and are led by a U.K. athletics qualified coach or run leader.
Potential new members can enjoy their first session for free or sign up straight away via the link below.
Details are listed on our ‘runs’ page, but there’s usually something going on every Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday or Sunday mornings.
Sessions are currently limited to 12 runners, plus Run Leader, therefore booking is essential. Some sessions may be cancelled if take up is low.
All our sessions are conducted in a fun, sociable setting and are suitable for anyone aged 14 upwards. Unfortunately, at the moment we cannot cater for juniors under the age of 14. A junior club will launch in the summer of 2021.
Sessions normally last for around 60 minutes. Long runs can be anything upwards of 60 minutes. Some sessions include 1 or 2 rest breaks. Please check the run details before booking.
