Running

Tuesday evening club runs – 6pm – 7pm and 7pm – 8pm

The Tuesday night club runs are mainly run along the roads of Burnham on Sea together with the surrounding areas of  Berrow, Brean, Highbridge and Huntspill. Both sessions cater for runners of all abilities, however, the 7pm session is usually run at a slightly faster pace. If you are keen you can run both!
During the summer months, the 7pm session involves runs on the track, the beach or cross  country by way of Brent Knoll and Brean Down! A pub is commonly involved at the end of some of these runs as well!

Summer runs are generally longer, with running times approximately 1 hour, or distances up to 7 miles, whilst winter runs are shorter, taking account  of weather conditions and along routes that are well lit to enjoy running safely.

The club meet at The Bay Centre, Cassis Close for both the 6pm and 7pm sessions.

The club also has two qualified leaders in running fitness and a qualified Coach in Running Fitness to provide coaching and technical support to improve your running.
