Buxton Athletic Club is a community based, inclusive athletics and running club that offers quality, progressive coaching to all ages and abilities from 7 to 70+. Buxton AC has been voted England Athletics Regional Club of the Year 2016 and 2017, and is the current National EA Club of The Year.
Buxton Athletics Club operates a 5-6k medium pace FREE monthly run; streets in winter, countryside in summer, the perfect way to see the Peaks and get fit! These runs are open to everyone of all standards—the only qualification is that you must feel like running 5K on a Saturday morning. No prior registration required – just turn up and run! Meet in the Pavilion Gardens.
Some of us simply want to get fit and are beginners, whilst others are more serious and want to compete at local and national level. And, of course, there are all those who fall somewhere in between those two camps. Over the years we have encouraged total beginners to start running, and many have stayed the course, achieving personal targets. Formed in 1977 by our current (and returned after 29 years) Chairman Chris Bent, our club caters for everyone. Visit their website to find out more at buxtonac.org.uk.
