Running Club

Here at Compass we are passionate about getting people fit! Whilst our fitness equipment is top of the range and our treadmills second to none we realise that sometimes there’s nothing better than feeling the earth beneath your feet and the wind in your hair. Scarborough has some amazing running terrain and some of the best views on the Yorkshire coast so why stay inside when you can get outdoors.

We provide a running club that does not judge or make assumptions we have literally taken all the things that make Compass special such as our amazing staff, customer service and friendliness and taken them outside. Whether your an experienced runner or are just starting you’ll receive all the attention and support you need to achieve your goals whether they are to get fit, lose weight or reduce your 5k running time.

Our Tuesday and Thursday groups start at 18.30 and are aimed at those new to running as well as Intermediate and Advanced runners. Both days involve distances of between 5km and 10km. If you’re a Beginner then we can take you from ‘Couch to 5k’, we want to take you off the Couch and get you up to 5 kilometers!

On a Thursday morning we offer an Early Bird run at 06.00. This is a one distance route up to 7km.

Join us on the last Sunday of each calendar month at 10.00am for our Family Run. These runs will vary in location and distance and be posted the on each Monday before the run takes place. **routes up to 10k**

All runs take place from either Compass on Barry’s Lane or from a location in Scarborough; either way we guarantee that they will incorporate some amazing local scenery and trails. All runner’s when meeting at Compass benefit from ample parking, shower and changing facilities. We even have hot drinks on sale and a seating area to relax and chat following the run.

Whilst all runner’s must subscribe to our terms and conditions we are a fully insured running club and are part of ‘RunTogether’. RunTogether has been created by England Athletics, the membership and development body for grassroots athletics and running in England, to provide fun, friendly, supportive and inclusive running opportunities for everyone in England. Being part of Run England means that you will be supervised by qualified Running Coaches who are qualified in running coaching, DBS checked (Safeguarding for U18’s) and trained in First Aid.
