Cirencester Athletics Club is the focus for all runners from Cirencester and the surrounding area. The club was formed in 1985 and has steadily grown to the current membership of 250, with runners aged from 17 to over 70 of all abilities from novice runners to people competing at an international level.
Cirencester AC incorporates the increasingly successful Cirencester Triathlon Club which has had representation from a local to international level. Swim coaching sessions are run each week at the leisure centre on a Sunday evening at 4:30pm.
We also have an active Junior Section for track and field athletes of school age which is very popular. The junior section meet on a Wednesday night at Kingshill School from 6.30pm - 7.30pm
The main club meet is at the Cotswold Leisure Centre in Cirencester on Tuesdays at 6.30pm for a structured training session (efforts, intervals or hill training). This session is split into 3 main training groups by ability, the fast group, medium group and improvers for adults members and a 'teenage' group by ability, the fast group, medium group and improvers. Each group has a tailored coach and training session each week.
In the summer these training sessions switch to Deer Park School where we are able to run on the grass track, access is via the second entrance along the A419 Stroud Road.
We also meet on Sundays at 9.00am for longer runs with several groups at different paces and distances. All this in the idyllic surroundings of Cirencester Park! If all that isn't enough for you....smaller groups also run on Thursday mornings.
Prospective new members are always welcome - just come along on a Tuesday evening and join in to see if the club can help you to enjoy and get more out of your running and triathlon!
We are affiliated to UKA, ARC and British Triathlon. We comply with the relevant guidance including Safeguarding, Health and Safety and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
