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 200), whose members participate in road, cross-country and fell running. As well as running together we like to socialise together. The Club runs five times a week including a hill or speed session, tempo and steady runs as well as a longer trail run.
Running as a group we generally stay together and always support newer and slower members.
Tuesdays: speed work or hill work featuring intervals, track and pyramid sessions. Location varies according to time of year and type of session. Details are in the weekly e-mail and / or Facebook.
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.
Thursdays: we run trails. An introduction to trail running with Gaby. Meet at Bramcote track NG9 3GE 6.25 pm for a 6.30 pm start. Easy pace 4 – 5 miles.
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.
