About Us

Ryston Runners AC was formed in 1986 at Ryston End near Downham Market. Originally a running club, we expanded to cover cross country and track & field, and now are one of the most active and versatile clubs in Norfolk.

Our core principle is to encourage athletes of all ages and abilities define and achieve their own personal goals and objectives, all within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

We adopt the policies and procedures of England Athletics to run our club and our adherence is checked and verified through the Club Mark scheme. Please click the Club Policy link on the right to view core documents relating to club procedures.
