We are a volunteer-run running club with roots firmly planted in the Ogmore Valley in South Wales.
The club was established in 2012 as Cwm Ogwr Running Club by a small group of people getting together in Ogmore Vale to create a focus for local runners. This year the club has risen from the ashes of the old club under a new name to go on to bigger and better things.
Since its beginnings it has grown to over 250 members, many of whom have graduated through the club’s zero to hero beginners group, taking complete non-runners to achieve their first 5k and beyond. Many of these are now marathon runners. From couch to marathon! An accolade to our ethos of inclusivity.
The catchment of the club has also grown, now having members from the Ogmore valley, Garw valley, Llynfi valley, Bridgend and beyond. We have members from all different backgrounds making it a wonderful mix of people. A running family. A family of men and women of all ages ranging from our current minimum age of 17 all the way up to our oldest members well into their seventies!
