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 Mighty Fellsman

BY MICHELLE BROOKS ON 20 APR  •  READ MORE →

As many of you will be aware, 2016 is the year of the long for me…ultra distances to prepare for the Lakeland 100. So it was with real trepidation and fear that I made the arduous decision to enter the Fellsman…61 miles, 11,000 ft climb over varying and tough terrain, in April with likely inclement weather conditions! What could possibly be wrong with that decision?!
