Our Athletics Club have over 200 members who regularly train for fun or run competitively. We have a number of sessions that take place throughout the week.
Club Run - Wednesday Nights 7pm - Sports Club
This our main club night and is usually a social run where several groups head out at different speeds and standards. On a Wednesday there is a chaperone group where one of the more experienced members goes out with any prospective or new members and anyone else who wants to come along. The objective is to make sure that new members get looked after, run at the right speed and distance for their ability and to get to know others of their ability before moving on into other groups.
There are some variations on Wednesday:
On the first Wednesday of the month there is a Club Race – it’s usually held somewhere else to give us some variation in where we run.
In addition there are coaching groups. The club has a coach who takes a group every two weeks out for some more specific training.
Track - Monday Nights 7pm - Stratford High School
This is our weekly track session so please arrive before 7pm to jog as a warm up before the session starts. This is a coached session, and it’s for everyone of all abilities, speeds and fitness levels.
Triathlon - Saturday Mornings 7am - Shipston Leisure Centre
There are lots of people who do triathlon, and there is swimming coaching for all members on a Saturday morning at 7am at Shipston leisure centre.
Juniors - Tuesdays & Thursdays - Stratford High School
We also has a very active Junior section and they mainly do their training on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the High School track.
Competitively as a Club we take part in various team things which you can get involved in or not – it’s entirely up to you: Cross Country, Track & Field, Road Relays. Club members do all sorts of competitions from Race for Life to Iron Man Triathlons.
Our aim is to be friendly and welcoming, and to give everyone the chance to enjoy and improve their running and make new friends
