Welcome to the virtual home of the

MARSDEN RACERS

Running & Cycling club in Huddersfield, Yorkshire

How we started!

Marsden Racers started in July 2014 following on from the Tour de France when it visited our area. Seeing the amazing response to the cycling, feelers were put out in the community and the response was overwhelming. 

 

We decided to combine both running and cycling within the group and 5 years later we have grown substantially.

 

We wanted to make running and cycling as accessible as possible to people so we encourage all abilities to join.

 

No one is left behind and everyone will be welcomed in!

 

We are very much focused on our community and how we can help people. In 2020, we expect to grow into a more official capacity to allow us to better support our members and the over all community.

 

We are open to all, friendly, sociable and above all, welcoming.
