Welcome to Trawden Athletic Club

Enjoy running? Come and 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!

The Lakeland 100: Taking Its Toll

BY PAUL BROWN ON 5 AUG  •  READ MORE →

A year ago Chell and I were in Coniston listening to an unsettling rendition of Nessun Dorma and watching a foolhardy pack of runners set off on the Lakeland 100. As they disappeared into the hills we shivered and were glad to "only" be doing the Lakeland 50 the following day. Less than a week later Chell had somehow convinced not only herself but also me and Mick to give the 100 a go in 2016. To this day I've no idea how this happened…
