Our main club night is on a Wednesday. We generally have 5 or 6 different groups to choose from; ranging from about 4 miles at a very moderate pace to 10+ miles at a brisk pace. We try to cater for all needs, and all ranges of ability and if you’re new to the club we’ll make sure we find a group to suit you. All groups have designated leaders.
We meet at 6.55pm in the cricket club bar area, when we run through forthcoming events and any items of interest before doing some warm-up exercises. Though we’re based on the edge of Aldershot there are a surprising number of great routes to choose from, particularly during the long nights of summer when we can get out as far afield as Puttenham, Crooksbury Hill and Tilford. In winter we tend to stick to well lit routes around Aldershot, Farnham, Tongham, Ash, etc. Every few weeks in the summer we have an “awayday” where we meet at the club then move to a local beauty spot and run from there; often then adjourning to a local pub to re-live the nights run! The summer also means the annual club handicap races – a series of 5 mile ‘races’ – taking place on the second Wednesday of the month between May and August.
If you’re new to the club or are thinking of joining, the Wednesday Club Night is the perfect time to come and meet everyone.
