Running & Athletics

About

We are a friendly and welcoming club. We offer weekly long and short distance coach led track sessions as well as casual 'social' runs. We welcome all abilities and there are no try-outs. Whether you area seasoned runner or have never set foot on a running track we would love to have you as a part of our team. 

In addition to weekly training members will have the opportunity to represent Queen Mary at various running events througout the year, from indoor and outdoor athlectis to x-country. We compete in the events held by LUCA and BUCS. Last year events were few and far between due to covid, however this year is looking much more promising. 

If competing is not your thing we would love to have you come along to our training and social activities - it's a great opportunity to keep fit, have fun and meet new people! You can choose your membership according to what it is you'd like to get from the club.  

Training

Each session will cater to new runners as well as those who may be more advanced, ensuring that everyone feels welcome. 

Provisional Training Schedule: Althought this is yet to be confirmed, we expect our trainign to look something like this... 

Monday - 6:00-6:50pm 5k or 3K Social Run (Followed by rehydration in spoons)
