As well as encouraging members to run and helping train those who wish to participate in the local racing scene, Trawden AC also hosts two of the annual Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix races: Boulsworth Fell Race and the Trawden 7.
Please take a good look around our site and read all about 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 two regular weekly training sessions on Monday and Wednesday 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!
It’s five o’clock on a winter Thursday evening, I have a cold, and what I should do is go home and do nothing, but yet again I am unable to resist orienteering’s draw.
There is something about combining running and thinking that does it for me; maybe it’s because I’m exercising without realising it or maybe it’s due to my low boredom threshold. I also like learning, and while navigating has been part of my repertoire for donkey’s years, the recent night event series provided a great opportunity to find out about the mapping and symbols that orienteers use.
