York Acorn is a friendly, sociable, easy-going running club that was originally formed in 1982. With a mixture of ages, experience, abilities and interests (including road, trail, fell, cross-country and track) most runners will find something to suit them at our club. We participate in events at a local, national and international level and our members travel from all over the York region to run together. Our members vary widely and include super fast race-winners, those setting out to achieve their own personal challenges and those who are happy with a steady run among friends. We consider the social side of our club very important and many runners stay on for a chat and a drink after training. In addition to this we also meet for various other activities, such as walking/orienteering events and gladly welcome newcomers interested in any of these pursuits. Whatever your interests and ability you'll find encouragement and support among our members.
