Welcome to Beeston Athletic Club
Would you like to try out running with a local, friendly running club? Beeston AC is a growing club (currently numbering over 150), whose members participate in road, cross-country and fell running. As well as running together, we like to socialise together. The Club runs three times a week and has full use of the changing rooms and showers at Chilwell Olympia.
Running as a group we always keep together, we are prepared to run and assist with new or slower members and faster runners will run up front and loop back at turning points.
Wednesdays: meet 6.25 pm in the foyer at Chilwell Olympia (Byepass Road, Chilwell, NG9 5HR) for 6.30 pm depart prompt for 5, 7 or 9 miles (approximately 1 hour 20 minutes of running). Meet afterwards in the Victoria Hotel, Dovecote Lane, Beeston.
Fridays: meet 6.25 pm in the foyer at Chilwell Olympia, 6.30 pm depart prompt for 5 to 7 miles (approximately 1 hour of running). Meet afterwards in The Crown Inn, Church Street, Beeston.
Sundays: for runners looking for a longer run, we also meet on at Stanton Gate at the end of Moorbridge Lane, Stapleford (DE7 4QS) at 9.00 am. We enjoy the rolling countryside around Stanton by Dale and run over tow paths, roads, trails and fields for around 7 to 10 miles, for about 1 hour 30 minutes.
We also arrange trips to 2 Half Marathons or equivalent abroad each year, further information on this can be found in the Overseas section.
In addition, we organise our own popular race, the TRENT 5, once a year (the Beeston parkrun route shares part of the course for this)
