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!
MONDAY 2ND MAY
The Bank Holiday saw eight juniors at Coiners with Joe Sims (21st) in the U12 race; Will Rowlands-Whiteoak (6th), Callum Osborne (11th) and Ben Stratton (13th) in the U10 race; and Callum Singleton (4th), Tamzin Osborne (5th girl), Lottie Hesketh (6th girl) and Ged McCabe in the U8 event. Not to be completely outdone, four of our chaps took part in the senior race too with David McCabe (16th), Adam Wallwork (19th), Andrew Braithwaite (39th) and Andy Graham (59th).
Bank Holiday weekend and as you can guess, action packed, starting off with Burnley Lions 10K on Friday night. This was my first ever race two years ago, wasn’t particularly looking forward to it, been enjoying off road far more than the black stuff of late, but I need to claim some points back off Adrian Blackledge.
