Diary

Our club meets for a social run every Tuesday, and for a training run every Thursday. We also participate in cross-country and road races most weekends, and ad-hoc groups often get together during the week for various other runs together, such as long runs.

All of our activities are attended by members of all abilities.

In general:
Winter runs are on the road within Burton, starting from the Shobnall Leisure Complex reception.
Summer runs are off-road from various locations in the Burton area, usually starting and finishing at a pub.

High vis vests must be worn for all winter evening runs, and head torches where street lighting is poor. If any member requires a high vis vest, one can be ordered from our Club Kit page.

    The 10km course is through the fields of the Anker Valley. It consists of tracks, concrete paths, grass, fields and a short section of tarmac. Stiles, gates and bridges to climb over add to the experience. The course is relatively flat and normal running shoes should suffice. The course is traffic-free throughout.
