About Us

Beverley Athletic Club has a short history dating back to February 1993. The club came about when newcomer to the area and keen runner, Peter Brown, suggested to the Leisure centre manager at the time, John Taylor, that in view of the number of people running around Beverley on their own there may be enough interest to form a running group at the leisure centre.

Mr Taylor paid for an advertisement to appear in the Beverley Advertiser inviting interested parties to attend a meeting at the leisure centre. As a result of 15 people attending the meeting and expressing an interest it was decided to trial group runs on a Wednesday evening. Despite attendance figures of less than half a dozen in the early weeks, numbers slowly picked up and a decision was taken to become an affiliated athletics club.

Since then annual membership figures have risen each year, topping 100 for the first time on 12th January 2000. Currently membership stands at approximately 180 and has also extended to a thriving and successful juniors club of approximately 30.

Welcome to our Website

Welcome to Beverley Athletic Club, established in 1993.

Our sponsors: Pittaway and B&A Scaffolding

We are proud to have our popular events sponsored by 2 local companies.
Pittaway are sponsoring our sell-out 10k race and B&A Scaffolding sponsor the fun run.
We are very grateful for their enthusiasm and support, without which these races would not happen.  See what these two companies can do for you here:
Pittaway painters and decorators and B&A scaffolding.  We hope that these are partnerships that will last many years.

All the more reason to marshal at Beverley 10k……..

If you are a runner new to the club you will get the opportunity to enter the Beverley 10k on May the 14th.  If you are not running, your club needs YOU!  It’s our biggest race and it takes some organising!  Please help out, even if it’s only for a limited time.  If you haven’t heard from the club already, regarding either marshalling or running, please email the organisers.

There is an incentive………we have food and a little drink booked at the Monk’s walk afterwards!  It would be rude not to!

Lucky break in the weather for the club duathlon

23 competitors enjoyed last nights Club Duathlon.  The bike course was dry with no wind, but the run was rather slippy and wet underfoot.  A grand time was had by all though.  Olly and Becky took the top spot in a team and Edd was first home in the individuals.  Well done all!  Many thanks to Mark Henderson of Sports Timing Solutions for giving his time up.

Train With Us

Our Training Schedule

You can see from our training schedule to the right that we give plenty of opportunity for our members to get and stay fit. Our regular training sessions allow you to build up a great frienship with your fellow runners and gives you the opportunity to prepare yourself for the many races that our members can join in.

Whatever your goals or motivation….come and train with us!

The club runs 3 or 4 training sessions per week throughout the year all designed to complement any training programme, to help you achieve a goal, to improve your PBs or just to make you stronger, fitter and healthier.

Monday speed
Monday nights are the club’s weekly speed work session, taken by a UKA qualified coach.  The sessions are designed to be suitable for anyone capable of running with the club on a Wednesday night.  These sessions include a mixture of faster paced running and mobility work, and are an excellent way to improve your running across the full range of race distances.

All sessions meet at 6:30pm, with the meeting point for the winter sessions being the Rose and Crown pub near the North Bar; we will then head up to the floodlit grass at Longcroft school.  During the Summer months meet on the Westwood at the top of Westwood Road.  The session starts and finishes from here.

Tuesday Hill Repeats
A session to improve speed, endurance and stamina, run by an experienced ultra-runner and long standing member of the club.  Tuesday 6:30pm Oct to April (from when Summer League finishes until Champagne League starts).  Meet at Beverley Leisure centre HU17 0LT.

Wednesday Club group run
Wednesdays 6:30pm.  A run where all the club set off together for any distance or speed to suit you.  Distances vary from approximately 4 up to 10 miles.  During the winter we try to arrange leaders for certain distances and speeds (generally 8 min miles, then every 30 seconds to 10 min miles).  This is especially valuable for new-comers to the club.  Meet at Beverley leisure centre HU17 0LT.

Club run – Away night.  Once a month from April to September (inclusive) a run is planned at an alternative location, convening afterwards in a local hostelry for food.  As soon as the locations and dates have been confirmed, they are added to the club calendar.

Thursday circuits
Thursday evenings are taken by a UKA qualified coach, and are designed to improve running technique and strength. The sessions are designed to be achievable by all, no matter what the starting point is as all of the activities can be scaled to the appropriate level.  The session runs in term time only at the Longcroft lower school gym between 7 and 8 pm. The session will start at 7pm, so aim to arrive at 6:50pm.  Parking is easiest from Church Road.

Please follow the country code

• Enjoy the countryside and respect its life and work

Our Younger Runners


Here at Beverley AC we run a thriving and successful Juniors section. Juniors can only train and race from the age of 9 in accordance with U.K. Athletics affiliation rules. The juniors train once a week, on a Wednesday, and then either race or train every Sunday. We concentrate on cross-country and middle distance racing, not track. We travel across the Humber and all over Yorkshire for these races. It is expected that any member will commit to 80% of the training and race events in our calendar.

All our juniors compete each Sunday with exceptions for school work, personal social events and holidays. Our older runners (year 7 and above) also train on Monday nights during the spring/summer. In advance of attending a training session, please contact the junior team coaches, Neil and Rona Sergeant, on 01482 887503 for further information. Please be aware, however, that due to the success of our junior team there is a waiting list at present

Juniors flying!

What a fantastic weekend for 3 of the juniors! Erin winning 1st girl at Walkington on Friday and then today 1st girl at Burton Constable Hall! Jay 3rd at Walkington then 2nd today and Becky 1st junior at Walkington and 1st lady overall today at the Burton Constable 10K!  Well done to all the juniors today who took part in the Burton Constable 4K and 10K races. A special mention to Emily H. who ran really well on Friday and collected an excellent 3rd girl place today.

Junior success at Humber Bridge

20 juniors competed on June 25th at the 4km race at the Humber Bridge that accompanied the half marathon. Very strong competition with a field of over 270, but we managed to get 4 athletes finishing in the top ten (Taylor 5th, Johnathon 6th, Jaye 8th and Joel 10th) and a brilliant run from Erin coming in 3rd girl and she’s only 12!   Also well done to Curtis who ran his first half marathon in an amazing time of 1hr 32 min!  Former Beverley AC Juniors member Josh, now a member of Leeds City AC came 6th.  It’s great to see former members continue to be keen and successful.  Finally, Beverley AC Juniors won the prize for most entries by an amateur team – winning a cheque for £100!  Not a bad day’s racing!

Junior success at Kirbymoorside

A great turnout from the juniors today at the Kirkbymoorside series of road races.  Joel, in the 1 mile, came in the top 10, with excellent finishes in the 4k by 8 of our juniors.  Special mention to Erin who was 3rd Year 7 girl and Jay 2nd and Jack M. 3rd Year 7 boys.   A thrilling finish in the 10k with only 10 seconds separating the 3 Arnott brothers and Johnathon!  Taylor won the day!  Izzy took part in her 1st 10k finishing in a very creditable 56 mins.  Well done everyone!

Juniors off to a flying start to the road race season

Well done to all the Juniors who took part in the Burton Pidsea 10K and 2 mile races today.  Some excellent performances at their 1st road race of 2017. A first victory for Jay in the 2 mile with Jack S. 2nd, Joel 3rd, Laura 1st girl, Erin 2nd girl and Izzy 3rd girl. Can’t beat that! 10K times were brilliant with Becky 1st junior lady 4th overall. Taylor was 2nd junior just ahead of Curtis and Johnathan. Eira did well in his first competitive 10k as did Jordan. A great start to the road race season.

Beverley juniors at the national cross country championships

A massive well done to all the Beverley Juniors who represented the Humber counties at the Great Britain Inter County Cross Country Championships at Loughborough today.  A great pleasure to see them  reach this national level.  Each athlete competed to the best of their abilities; they, and the club, should be very proud of their committment.  Well done Becky, Robert, Jordan, Jay, Taylor, Johnathon and Eire.   Brilliant to be coaching and mentoring them all.
