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!
Over 150 age group runners made up of those from their late 30s to those in their 70s qualified for the England team which competed in Chester against a Celtic Nations Team.
We are very pleased to announce that our next Couch to 5K programme starts on Tuesday 15th January! So if you're looking to boosting your New Year's fitness motivation, look no further!
Couch to 5K is a FREE nine-week programme of exercise to help encourage and enable people who may never have run before, or at least not for some time, to jog or run 5km by the end of the course.
Anyone taking part should visit www.upandactive.co.uk and register as a user (registration forms will be available at the start of each session too). Once you have registered, you will receive a barcode which you should bring along to any Couch to 5K session you attend. This will be scanned and can be used to track your progress throughout the programme.
