Welcome to Trawden Athletic Club

Enjoy running road, off-road, trail or cross country? Live in or around East Lancashire? You're more than welcome to join Team TAC! We're a thriving and sociable running club based in Pendle, East Lancashire, where absolutely everyone is welcome. You'll find Trawden AC caters for runners of all abilities and offers an unrivalled network of support, including a very popular Couch to 5K group.

Trawden Athletic Club was voted England Athletics North West "Club of the Year 2015", and won "Team of the Year 2014" at the prestigious Pendle Sports Awards, positive proof that we provide outstanding opportunities and support for runners and athletes throughout the Pendle area and beyond.

Our many members range from beginners who choose to run for fitness to those who regularly compete in local and national races. As well as encouraging members to run and helping train those who wish to participate in the local racing scene, Trawden AC hosts two of the annual Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix races – Boulsworth Fell Race and the Trawden 7 – as well as the Bowley Hill Trail Race in May.

In early 2014 we established what has already become a blooming juniors section. We often have over 40 children of all ages attend our Tuesday evening training, all under the watchful eyes of our junior coaching team. All our children enjoy and benefit from structured exercise plans and we already have some young race winners pushing through the ranks.

So please take a good look around our site and discover our recent activities, race results, training and the many forthcoming local and regional events in which Team TAC is taking part. Although running is the mainstay of the club, we also encourage and promote other activities such as map reading and navigation, duathlons, triathlons and adventure racing.

We hold four regular weekly training sessions on Monday to Thursday evenings. You can check our training diary for further information. Our dedicated qualified athletics coaches can tailor a training or exercise regime to your specific needs. You are very welcome to come along to any of our training sessions to see if Trawden AC is for you.

We hope to see you soon and in the meantime...happy running!

Bouncing back to the Grand Prix

BY DIANE FORD ON 24 AUG  •  READ MORE →

Well as most of you know, I was involved in a pretty horrific accident on the 1st October 2017. The finish line at the Burnley Fire 10K knocked me to the ground, resulting in two fractures and a break to my right leg/knee.

Six weeks in a locked brace, then weekly visits to have the dial altered to get the bend back in my knee, followed by months of ongoing physio. When I attended my initial physio, my first question was how long before I can run again? I need to be fit I explained, as I've said that I’m going to complete all fourteen races in the Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix!

Amanda (that’s the physio) looked at me as though I’d asked her for a million pounds. “Let’s learn to walk first Diane, then in about 3-4 months we can see about running, maybe you’ll learn to love a new sport like swimming or cycling.”
