Swimming

We train twice a week at Richmond Swimming Pool and when the weather improves and the temperatures rise we do our Open Water training at Ellerton Water, Scorton, (although our adults are still going strong in the lake in December this year!).

Cycling

We carry out weekly cycling sessions on a Saturday morning at Brompton on Swale community sports hall, but we also encourage our members to compete in the following:- The League International (TLI) Series at Croft circuit (May-July) and also the Richmond CC 10 mile TT on Thursday nights in the summer. Our members are also welcome to attend the Richmond CC Sunday Club rides when on.

The club is affiliated to the Road Time Trial Championship and we encourage participation at their events. In winter/extreme weather (it is Yorkshire!) cycle training is indoors at spinning classes or Turbo sessions.

When we get the chance the club run sessions at the off road circuit at the Middlesbrough sports village.

Running

Running sessions are mixed with the weekly Saturday biking sessions. We actively promote and encourage participation in all the local parkruns (when not at our sessions), every Saturday at 09:00 and Junior parkrun at Richmond Station at 09.00 on Sundays. Our closest 5km parkruns are Darlington, Northallerton and Fountains Abbey, keep an eye out for us.
