How we started!

Marsden Racers was the product of one too many beers following the Tour de France. Having just moved to the village, we didn’t know anyone and wanted to quickly rectify that. After seeing the amazing support in the area for cycling, we decided to put the feelers out and were overwhelmed by the response.

5 Years later, we have grown substantially and have made many dear friends along the way. We wanted to make running and cycling as accessible as possible to people so we encourage all abilities to join. No one is left behind and everyone will be welcomed in!

We are very much focused on our community and how we can help people. We may have started this group, but our members very much own it now! 

We now have a committee in place to steer this club in the right direction and grow this further.

We have an instagram account, who doesn’t right? But we want to see what YOU are up to! 

Use #marsdenracers in your post to feature on a wall and show off your sporting activities to the rest of our community!


We are FREE!

Thats right, we are totally free. All our sessions are open to everyone and we do not charge a penny

Training in A group is more fun!

Training with others is proven to provide better results. So whether you are training for a 5k, getting into cycling, or taking on your first marathon, come join us!

All abilities are welcome!

You are NEVER too slow. You will NEVER hold people back. We encourage all to come and join us to cycle or run with us. Why not give us a try!

We do lots of charity challenges

We have done many fun challenges for Charity, including raising money for Holme Valley Mountain rescue, nearly £8000 for MacMillan as well as Yorkshire Air Ambulance

We are Social!

We started this group as a new way to meet people, so that involves plenty of social gatherings, club challenges and reasons to all get together!

Run as a family

Our 5k Sessions are perfect for you to run as a family! Get your kids into running and enjoy some quality time together!
