Running in the Yorkshire Wolds
Pocklington Runners is a UK Affiliated running club which aims to provide a social or competitive atmosphere where you can enjoy running in and around the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds.

Meet at the club on Monday evenings at 6:30pm. Focus on improving fitness while having fun. Session run by one of the club's LiRFs (Leader in Running Fitness).
Our main club nights are on a Wednesday evening, meeting at Pocklington Rugby Club at 6:30 pm, where we focus on a social run each week. There will be a variety of routes, distances and paces on offer to suit all runners - heading out into the beautiful Wolds and surrounding countryside. Afterwards enjoy free tea / coffee and biscuits. The bar is normally open for those wishing to purchase a beer or a soft drink.
This popular and well established race is a fairly flat, fast 10 miler, ideal as part of a Spring Marathon training plan or as an early target for your season. As the name suggests, the course has a winding stretch that snakes its way through the countryside at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds.
The 32nd edition of Snake Lane event will be held on Sunday 18 February 2024. Race start 09:00
Entries open on 21 October 2023 at 11:00.
