Clevedon Athletic Club is a thriving and friendly running club, based on the North Somerset coast-line 12 miles from the City of Bristol.
Formed in May 1977, we have gone from strength to strength and are now a major force to be reckoned with in the South West, regularly producing notable success on the road as well as team achievements in Relays and Cross Country leagues.
The club caters for all abilities from the age of 15 years and upwards. The training is geared to your individual goals; working within a team environment to enable you to reach your potential.
Club training nights are held on Tuesday (summertime we meet at Clevedon Community School where our session is geared around the running track) and Thursday evenings throughout the year, meeting at Clevedon’s Strode Leisure Centre just before 7:00pm by the club notice board, as well as irregular sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
We have organised the prestigious Clevedon 4 Mile Boxing Day Race since 1977 which now attracts 1,000 competitors, as well as the Midsummer 10k and the North Somerset Road Relays. In 2014 we jointly launched the new Court Wood 5k series in conjunction with the Clevedon School sports department.
Our aim is to promote an enjoyable and rewarding interest in athletics for runners of all abilities in a safe and friendly team environment.
New members are always welcome. Just contact any of the Committee for further details.
If you are new to running, or have been trying it for a while and want to improve, why not come along to a training session and speak to one of our qualified coaches or the other members?
The club has set up two vibrant groups on on Facebook, one on Strava, and now has a Twitter account too.
