WASHINGTON RUNNING CLUB

Our local running club is based at Biddick Academy. We are a friendly running club with over 200 members of all abilities. We have teams that compete in the Harrier League Cross Country, Relay Races and many other regional events.


We are a very inclusive club and welcome all runners aged from 16 no matter what your ability. If you have no experience of running but want to start, our C25k programme can get you running in only 9 weeks. After that, our regular club sessions are split into groups of similar ability.


Training on Thursdays is an intense 1 hour session focusing on hills, sprints, intervals, or endurance training. Sundays are focused on a longer social run. The majority can get you running in only 9 weeks. After that, our regular club sessions are split into groups of similar ability.




We meet at 7pm Thursdays and 9am Sundays at Biddick Academy car park. Anyone is welcome to come along and try a couple of our fun, friendly sessions for free. If you find its right for you, yearly membership is £22.




JUNIOR TRAINING


Also training at 6pm on Wednesdays we have a very popular junior club which caters for young runners aged 8 to 16, costing £10 per month. Juniors train indoors during the winter months, moving outdoors in spring, and following a training plan to improve speed and endurance in a fun way.
