Senior Membership Officer – Ann Kirton (seniors@thetford-ac.co.uk)

Thetford Athletic Club was originally formed in 1974.  The Club has grown in recent years and now boasts over 100 members. We compete in a wide variety of events including track and field, Sports hall, cross country and, in more recent times, adventure racing and Ultra Marathoning.

Fed up with running alone?  Want to realise your full potential?

We have a very successful senior group, catering for all runners regardless of speed, fitness or ability.  For those who want to race, we offer structured training to help you achieve your goals.  But we’re not all about racing.  We enjoy regular and varied social activities.

If you can run for 10 minutes, we meet for structured training sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm (venues detailed in the Diary).  There is also a Saturday social run, meeting in town at 8.30 a.m. for a 6-7 mile run.

Senior membership includes the following:-

  • Monday and Wednesday night structured training sessions
  • Saturday morning social run
  • One track session per month (Wednesday evenings) during the Winter season
  • Potential entry into the Round Norfolk Relay in September
  • Entry into the Club ballot for a London marathon place (Ts and Cs apply)

We offer a free, one month trial to potential new members (excluding beginners below).  Try before you buy!!

For complete beginners, we offer regular running courses on Wednesday evenings. At the end of the course, we hope that you will become a member of the Club and attend the structured training sessions.
