Welcome to Trawden Athletic Club

Enjoy running road, off-road, trail or cross country? Live in or around East Lancashire? You're more than welcome to join Team TAC! We're a thriving and sociable running club based in Pendle, East Lancashire, where absolutely everyone is welcome. You'll find Trawden AC caters for runners of all abilities and offers an unrivalled network of support, including a very popular Couch to 5K group.

Trawden Athletic Club was voted England Athletics North West "Club of the Year 2015", and won "Team of the Year 2014" at the prestigious Pendle Sports Awards, positive proof that we provide outstanding opportunities and support for runners and athletes throughout the Pendle area and beyond.

Our many members range from beginners who choose to run for fitness to those who regularly compete in local and national races. As well as encouraging members to run and helping train those who wish to participate in the local racing scene, Trawden AC hosts two of the annual Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix races – Boulsworth Fell Race and the Trawden 7 – as well as the Bowley Hill Trail Race in May.

In early 2014 we established what has already become a blooming juniors section. We often have over 40 children of all ages attend our Tuesday evening training, all under the watchful eyes of our junior coaching team. All our children enjoy and benefit from structured exercise plans and we already have some young race winners pushing through the ranks.

So please take a good look around our site and discover our recent activities, race results, training and the many forthcoming local and regional events in which Team TAC is taking part. Although running is the mainstay of the club, we also encourage and promote other activities such as map reading and navigation, duathlons, triathlons and adventure racing.

We hold four regular weekly training sessions on Monday to Thursday evenings. You can check our training diary for further information. Our dedicated qualified athletics coaches can tailor a training or exercise regime to your specific needs. You are very welcome to come along to any of our training sessions to see if Trawden AC is for you.

We hope to see you soon and in the meantime...happy running!

Clitheroe Triathlon


Having a ‘triathlete’ husband encouraged me to dip my toe in the world of three discipline events last year and I completed three sprint events in 2017 (one of which involved an open water swim and a couple of small hills on the bike).

As a relatively strong, if steady, swimmer and having a few running miles under my belt, I borrowed said hubby’s ‘winter’ bike and gave it a go. Having not cycled on a road bike since my old ‘racer’ when I was at school, this proved to be the most challenging for me. Well this and the feeling of running like Bambi after the cycle.

Living in Clitheroe and watching our local triathlon for the last three years (from the top of Jeffrey Hill…more to be said about this later), I decided that this would be my first tri of 2018 and signed up as soon as the entries were open, thinking my tri buddy would do the same! She didn’t!
