About the Club
The club is open to anyone aged 12 and over (certain rules apply to under 18). We have runners of all abilities, from the super-fast to the steady jogger and complete beginner. Our members mainly enjoy running for fun and health. The emphasis of the club is on improving fitness in a sociable atmosphere.

There are two club sessions a week, both starting from Havant Leisure Centre.
*Note: In the summer we occasionally meet and run from other local locations
Tuesdays, 6:30pm: Social run in groups, approx. 4 to 7 miles
Thursdays, 6pm: Main group training session working on speed, hills, intervals etc.
For the Tuesday runs, newcomers should be able to run 3 to 4 miles. The Thursday evening training, under the guidance of one of the qualified club coaches, is more appropriate for beginners. These sessions are carefully designed to offer a challenge to everyone - whatever their level of fitness or ability - as they can be tailored for both the ultra-fit and the total novice.
During the summer months, as a variation on the Thursday evening training schedule, the club runs a 'short' and a 'long' handicap race series, designed to give each participating member an equal opportunity to win.
Many members compete in local races from 5 kilometers to full marathons and beyond - with some venturing further afield, even to the occasional international event! Races may be road, cross-country or multi-terrain events.
The club subscribes to local leagues, including the highly-popular Southern Cross Country League, a series aimed at average-to-slow runners (a threshold is set so faster runners are excluded!). Several summer charity relay events are particularly popular. The club also arranges social events and the occasional countryside summer evening run based at a suitable pub.
