In reply to biker bill: Decent depends.. try a few.. whats good for you is different to others, are you looking for a social scene.. racing.. improvements.. running partners.. structured training.. weekend trips.. road.. fell..

I like to be in a club with a chunk of runners better than me.. not overly so, but also have class runners around. But I also like active races.

Whats good for you maybe not so good for others, but don't feel compelled to join, just run with a club til you feel comfortable its for you.

Where exactly are you based? As Iain says, decent depends what you are after, what standard you are.

Give a few more details and I'll give you a run down on the clubs in the area, I know members of most of them.

Well there is Middleton Harriers, social club with a few faster runners, really friendly club, lots of road runners, but also an active fell section. I'm a Rochdale Harrier, runners of all standards, with lots of people doing road, fell and XC, good social scene. Royton Road Runner again all standards and a good social scene. I don't know Oldham and Royton all that well. Salford is an elite club.

In reply to biker bill: Middleton are a good club by all accounts. Iain's points about what exactly it is you're after are important. If you want predominantly fell: http://www.rossendaleharriers.co.uk

Race is at 7.15, Springfield Park, which if you are coming from Middleton is through Castleton to the junction at the Tesco turn left and the park is after half a mile on your right.
