Beginners Group

Weston Athletic Club welcomes anyone who is currently a non-runner but would like to become part of a local club.

You do not need to be a specific standard to join as you will be coached through the first stages very gradually until you are ready to take the next step. As you become more comfortable and confident you can progress to the next level, but this will only happen when you want it to.

The beginnerís group meets at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, during the summer months, on the playing fields at the rear of the complex every Tuesday evening at 7.00pm.

If you are interested in having a couple of free trial sessions please contact Sue White on the link below.
