TRAINING AT WESTON ATHLETIC CLUB

You are very welcome to run with us for two or three weeks before making a commitment to join. We sincerely hope that you will like us enough to want to become a member of the finest athletic club in the South West (probably). Runners are welcome at any of our training nights. Most sessions are structured to cater for a wide range of standards and ability. New members are encouraged to come along to either our Monday night Trail or Tuesday night Rep/interval session in the first instance as this will give you an opportunity to meet the coaching teams, find out more about the club and what we have to offer. Please check our events calendar for details of our current activities. Visiting runners are always very welcome.

7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre

A fairly easy paced road run of around 7 miles. Everyone runs as a group on Mondays, at a pace determined by the coach. Faster runners will double back at various checkpoints. New runners are encouraged to come along to Tuesday training in order to find out more about the club before joining the Monday night group.

7:00pm

In the winter months meet on the prom (in the square shelter halfway between the Trop and the Royal Sands end of the seafront)
In the summer months meet on the sports field behind Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
We start with a short warm up and then run a session of repetitions over various distances or times, with recovery intervals between them. If you are really looking to improve your times, this session will do it for you. The training is structured so that whatever your standard you will not be left beh

7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre

We use a variety of different circuits to provide a steady road run of between 4 and 8.5 miles. We usually split into 5 or 6 different groups according to standard, which allows everyone to do the course at a suitable pace. All of the routes have points where the course may be shortened if you do not feel like completing the whole distance. Our regular circuits include Fartleking, Five Hills Puff, Four Bridges Grunt, Old Slog, Morrisons Run and Graveyard Run

The club cyclists are usually out on Saturday mornings for a road ride of around 50 or 60 miles. Normal start time is 8:15am (but later in deep Winter due to it being dark at 8.45am), with a mid-route ‘Big Breakfast’ stop. The meeting place is normally by the school gates opposite the Sainsburys store in Worle. If you are thinking about a triathlon or just want a bit of cross training, these sessions will help. They’re also not bad if you just like a good breakfast.

8:00am meeting at various locations as advertised weekly below and on our news page. Sessions generally include hill repeats at Uphill or Worlebury Woods or interval / lactic threshold training on the Prom.

If you have a marathon in mind (or even a half), this is the one that you must not miss. The long, slow run provides the platform for all of your training. On most Sunday mornings, there are one or two groups of runners out, with options of between 12 and 21 miles. Most of the runs are off-road and are taken at an easy pace. (With the hills we find to run up there is really only one pace available). Start times are normally between 8am and 9am.
