In The Beginning.....
This local club was founded in 1983 when four regulars at The Sheppey pub in Maltby decided that they ought to do something about getting fit! So, Brian Lowndes, Dave Thorpe, Malc Stevenson and Barry Morgan started pounding the streets. When Mansfield Breweries kindly sponsored them, enabling them to buy kit, they officially became The Sheppey Running Club.
Many years and many changes have followed these humble beginnings. The club went from strength to strength, changing its name and competing in athletics events as well as road races. In the early 90's, the junior team often swept the board in the South Yorkshire Road Races, and senior members were, and still are, placed well up the field.
The club still takes part in as many local races as possible, forging links with various clubs in the area, enjoying both the competitive and social aspects of the meetings. These almost always, still, start and finish in a pub, as refreshment is always essential after a hard race!
Members also run in events such as The London Marathon, The Great North Run and the Skye Half Marathon, and achieve very respectable times. But Maltby Running Club is also proud to be able to claim international status, as members have travelled thousands of miles to take part in marathons and half marathons! Majorca, Benidorm, Cyprus, New York, Paris, Portugal and Las Vegas are just a few of the exotic locations visited.
As well as working on personal fitness levels, this club also works for the benefit of others, regularly organizing races to generate money for various charities. Over the years, in excess of Â£5000 has been raised and donated, mainly to The British Heart Foundation, The Bubble Appeal in Newcastle and PACT in Sheffield. Â£700 has been raised over the last twelve months and more will be added in September from the Bawtry Forest Trail run.
Members come from various outlying districts, not just from Maltby, and if you too would like to improve your fitness levels, join them in the car park of the Leisure Centre at 6.30pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9.30am on Sundays for a longer run.
