About PAC Road Runners
Pontefract Athletics Club Road Runners, or PAC Road Runners as we are also known, are a great group of runners to run with. We have a wide range of abilities, experiences, and talents and there is something for everyone, no matter how quick or slow you are or think you are.
PAC Road Runners are based in Carleton, Pontefract in West Yorkshire, and train several times a week and take part in road races locally and across the country. Our white and purple kit is quite distinctive and we love to enjoy race days as a team.
Our team of experienced run leaders delivers training sessions and run routes multiple times each week so there is plenty of options for runners to get involved with as well as the internal club events that we organise.

How to book onto sessions
In 2020, we started using an App giving us much more functionality to share news about the club with members who may not be Facebook users. We believe in making ourselves accessible wherever possible.
We are asking ALL club road runners who are members to book onto training sessions and Grand Prix events via our App. This is so that we can enable us all to run in small groups safely, send club information to you that is relevant to you and so that we have a record of who is present.
To get the full features of the App you need to download Team App onto your smartphone. It is available to use from your desktop too if you wish. Download Team App here (http://teamapp.com/app). Don't worry, the app is 100% FREE.
1. Launch Team App.
2. Sign-up to Team App. You'll be sent an email to confirm your registration.
3. Log in and then search for PAC Road Runners and request access to the PAC ROAD RUNNERS group.
If you have any questions about the App, please ask one of the run leaders (see photos above)

Are you interested in coming and running with us?
Firstly, great! We look forward to hearing from you and telling you more about us. We ask that all runners who aren't members get in touch with us first so we can talk to you about your running experience, usual pace, and what you're looking for so that we can help you decide which session would be best and so that our run leaders can introduce you to similar paced runners at the sessions.
We do a 'try before you buy' scheme where you can come along for three weeks of sessions before asking for you to apply for membership. To let us know that you are interested, please fill in the contact form here. We look forward to hearing from you.
