Welcome to the Penistone Footpath Runners junior section web pages.
Young athletes train every Tuesday (6:30 pm) at Penistone Church Football Club. Planned training sessions are held with all age groups (min 8yrs) led by qualified coaches.
Junior athletes are given the opportunity to train and compete across a wide range of events, including track and field, road running, cross country and fell running, but are also encouraged to run socially at whatever level they wish.
The club organises a winter league based on a series of eight handicap races for all the juniors in the club, and one-off summer and fell handicap races.
We provide support for our juniors competing in the South Yorkshire County Athletics Association (SYCAA) track and field and cross country series, as well as local multi-terrain and fell races.
