We are a friendly, sociable club that meets every Tuesday and Thursday at Craven Pool to run local routes of approximately 4-6 miles at differing paces depending on ability. Interval training is also available on Tuesdays only, offering a variety of hill reps, flat sprints and drills to improve fitness and stamina. Please see the SENIORS page for more information.
Many Skipton AC members represent the club at local, national and international racing events as well as parkruns; we run a Club Championship and also a Handicap League where all members are encouraged to participate, whatever their ability. We compete in local Summer and Winter Leagues which are always good fun and a chance to socialise.
As well as competitive running, we also meet on Wednesdays for a social run. This is an off-road route in the local area where we usually start and finish at a pub where we can enjoy refreshments afterwards!
On Tuesdays we offer junior training sessions with qualified coaches (all DBS checked) for children aged 8-17. Please see the JUNIORS page for more information.
Members are also welcome to join ‘Skipton AC Members’ Forum’ on Facebook; a page to share experiences, learn about upcoming races and social events as well as general, good-humoured banter.
You are very welcome to come along and try out our training sessions, meet some of us and see if Skipton AC is for you.
