We are an athletics club of about 400 members based at Tilsley Park who welcome children and adults
As well as training for track and field events, there is a large adult road running contingent too who compete regularly in local races as well as races further afield.
Members of the club are also involved in the organisation of the Abingdon Marathon that takes place in October. The model that is used for it is that charities are paid for providing marshals for the race, so if there are any local charities that want to boost their funds and have some volunteers willing to give up their Sunday morning on behalf of the charity, then this is a good funding stream for them (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org).
When/where we meet
Track training takes place every Tuesday and Thursday evening at Tilsley Park and there is a road (or trail run, depending on the season) for the adults on Tuesday evenings too
In the winter there is often cross country training in varying locations on Saturday mornings.
Our members vary in age from 8 to 80 years and we welcome runners of all abilities.
All our coaches have England Athletics qualifications, are DBS checked and our Welfare policy is reviewed regularly.
