Where & when we train

The club meets every Wednesday evening at 7:00pm at the Abbey Sports Centre, London Road, Faversham, ME13 8RZ.

Whether you're a beginner, a more advanced runner, or somewhere in-between, everyone meets together and trains together.

We are a club that values and promotes the following principles:
  • Improve towards your own personal goals
  • Community partnerships
  • Access to qualified coaches and professional physiotherapists
  • Network and socialise with like-minded and friendly, local people

For those runners who want to push a little bit further, many of the club's runners meet on Sunday mornings at the Faversham Recreation Ground car park at around 8:00am for a slightly longer run. Please see our facebook page for details of any upcoming Sunday runs.
