We're biased of course, but we think Ilkeston Running Club is one of the best around.But, you may have some concerns about whether joining a running club is right for you.You're not alone, a lot of people do think this way.Here, Richard Iliffe, who recently became chairman of Ilkeston Running Club, writes about why he thinks you should join.____Running into new horizons I am still relatively new to running, having only taken it up in November 2012.From running a mile a day (sometimes not even that far) in November 2012, to running my first “race” in 2013 (the Derby 10K, with the help of Ilkeston Running Club), I am now running up to marathon distance events, regularly tackling the fells and will soon tackle my first Ultra (a gentle 65km).Whilst I had the personal motivational reason to take up and enjoy running, joining a running club has helped me massively. Admittedly, the thought of tagging along with “proper runners” was very daunting,Would I be fast enough?Did I have the right clothing or footwear?Would I need all the hi-tech gadgets?But, do you know, none of this mattered. I was made to feel at ease on the first night, and everyone ran at my pace.I very quickly turned into a runner, rather than someone who runs. Although I have lived in Ilkeston all my life, I discovered new paths and trails I never knew existed; again another benefit of running with the club is varying my running.Previously, I would only stick to the roads but we have a massive amount of paths and trails on our doorstep, so you don’t have to be a lone runner and just pound the streets.By joining a club, you will have the support and guidance of enthusiastic and experienced runners. You can read as many books as you like, but these benefits should never be underestimated.For me, the best thing about becoming a club runner is the friendships. The pressures of everyday life are with us all, Running, and being part of a club, is an escape from this. Compared to other sports, running is available to everyone, it is relatively cheap, and, within minutes, you can be out of your front door and running.I would advocate that everyone should join a club like Ilkeston Running Club. You won’t look back.___To join the club, visit http://www.ilkestonrunningclub.co.uk/About/JoinTHeClub
