Our Story

Newmachar running group was formed in 2017 to prepare runners for the inaugural Newmachar 10k (N10k), the group quickly grew to over 30+ regular runners turning up for training sessions. On completion of the N10k it was quickly identified that the village and surrounding area needed the running group to continue and plans were put in place to create the group into a Jogscotland group in January 2018.

The group is relatively new, however our leaders have shown great depth of knowledge and have assisted runners gain their goals over 2018 where many have only just started out running achieved their first 3k, 5k & 10k races and all in very respectable times. Many of our regular runners have now stepped up their goals and achieved 1/2 Marathons (13.1 miles), Marathons (26.2 miles) and ultra-marathon distances.

Between the 2 sessions held weekly, we typically see anything from 35-50 runners per week joining this friendly local group, where all runners are made welcome.

We have a distinct identity and i can promise no oranges were harmed in the creation of our garments, we can be seen from a distance with our distinct orange hoodies, t shirts & vests that all our runners are very proud to wear.
