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.

We are a friendly running club interested primarily in road and cross country running.  We welcome runners of all abilities, shapes, sizes and ages!

We meet on Wednesdays at the Beverley Leisure centre at 6:30pm and we also have other sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursday available to compliment any training programme.  If you are new to running, come and take those first steps with us, where you will be in safe hands.

We also have a very enthusiastic junior club for members over 9 years old.  The junior club meet on Wednesday evenings at 6pm at Beverley Leisure centre.

Please see our Training Sessions section lower down/on the Calendar page for further detail of what we offer and where.

Cycle Nights: Start 6:30pm 4th April, every Thursday.

*  Cycle nights are back! Time to dust off that bike that’s been stuck in the shed over winter.
*  Starting Thursday, 4th April, setting off from the leisure centre at 6:30pm and every Thursday thereafter, weather permitting.
*  Everyone is welcome, stipulations are – bike must be roadworthy; lights, hi-viz and helmets must be worn; and you must be familiar with the highway code.

Wolds Way Relay Challenge 2018

There are already cries for another event of the same ilk….and a winter version of it too!  80 runners took on the challenging 79 mile, 8307 feet route, with the added “benefit” of a gorgeous sun beating down, navigating the mileage and elevation profile to be rewarded at the finish line by a crate of Wold Top Wolds Way beer.  All the participants also earned a commemorative limited edition WWRC bracelet and the respect of their supporters and fellow team runners.

Teams competed from East Hull Harriers, Beverley AC and friends, Driffield Striders, Barton and District AC and Caistor Running Club with all clubs finishing inside the projected finishing times.

The event raised vital funds for National Trails so that beautiful routes like the Wolds Way remain accessible to all.

Many thanks to Andy Tate, Beverley AC club president, and Jayne Dale, club stalwart, for organising the event which was a huge success and an example of excellent camaraderie.

1st team – East Hull Harriers all male team came home first in a time of 10 hours and 14 minutes.
2nd team – Beverley and friends 10 hours 55.
5th team – Beverley All Stars 11 minutes 42.

  East Hull Harriers all male team take the first finishers spot and hold the John Baker Shield.

 Commemorative bracelet

 Beverley and friends team finish in 2nd place.

  Some of Andy Johnson’s 1414 of incline (and every team member’s number 1 supporter!)

 Beverley All Stars hand over Leg 2 (Andy) to Leg 3 (Jayne).

  Beverley All Starts final leg finisher, Nicole Dawson, in 11 hours and 42 minutes.

Many thanks to organisers, runners and supporters, without you all there would have been no event.

High Praise for Beverley AC from Archbishop

At Beverley AC this year we were lucky enough to be supported by Archbishop Dr John Sentamu, who included a visit to our B&A Scaffolding Fun Run and Pittaway Beverley 10k as part of his mission to Beverley.  He was delighted to be such an active part in proceedings and was very impressed by everyone’s efforts.  Well done Fun Runners and 10k’ers alike who made that day so special for him.

Beverley Saints cycling group

Beverley Saints is a cycling group, originally established from runners of Beverley AC, but also includes friends and like minded people who enjoy the many health and social benefits by cycling on the many routes East Riding offers.
The group does not indulge in competitive events and is not affiliated to British cycling, but is simply an informal group with its own identity and customised kit.  We meet on Thursday evenings at 6.30pm from Beverley Leisure Complex (May – September) and generally cycle 20-25 miles with a pub stop at the end.  The group are also looking to arrange some Sunday morning rides in the winter (weather permitting!

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Andy Tate andytate@bevac.karoo.co.uk or Jayne Dale jaynedale94@gmail.com

Handicap and knockout cup rules December 2018

With a new year approaching, Lucas has put together a brief explanation of the Handicap and Knockout Cup Series for you all – an aide memories for long term members and useful info for the newbies.

Each year the club has a Handicap Race Series; the Handicap League, along with the 10K series and Knockout Cup.

The Handicap Series is made up of 12-15 races, nominated by the club.  No one is obliged to run any, but the more you do the better chance of winning prizes at the end of the series.  For each race you run you get points depending on how you perform versus your predicted time (handicap) based on recent results.  At the end of the year the person with the most points from their best 6 races (2 short and 1 long plus best 3 others) wins.

The 10K and under series is much the same but you only need to run 3 races of 10K or shorter to qualify and it’s your best 3 results.

The Knockout Cup is drawn each year and then follows a grid format, with 64 members qualifying through various means.  You are then encouraged to take part in the same race as your opponent within the time limit set out on the grid.  The winner who progresses is the runner performing best against their handicap target.

Within the list we include 2 club only races – Reverse Handicaps* – which are held at – Walkington (10K) and North Newbald (5 miles).  We also have a winter race on a Sunday – the next one being South Dalton (5 miles) on 20th January 2019 which is a stand alone-event used for the final cup qualifiers.

The full list of the Club Handicaps for 2019 is now on the club site, along with the first round draw for the 2019 Cup and updated rules.

*Reverse Handicaps mean you start in reverse order of your predicted time so the slowest goes off first and the fastest last.  In effect you should all finish at the same time if you run to your handicap.  These usually mean the first across the line is the winner!

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 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 currently being Beverley Leisure Centre on Flemingate.  During the Summer months meet on Newbald Road, near the junction with York Road.  This is where the ice cream man often is.  The session starts and finishes from here.

Please contact secretarybeverleyac@gmail.com to confirm meeting location before attending.

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.

During the winter we often organise head torch runs, still setting off from the Leisure Centre, but taking advantage of the many footpaths and rural trails around Beverley.  Trail shoes and a head torch essential!

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.

Handicap and knockout cup rules December 2018

With a new year approaching, Lucas has put together a brief explanation of the Handicap and Knockout Cup Series for you all – an aide memories for long term members and useful info for the newbies.

Each year the club has a Handicap Race Series; the Handicap League, along with the 10K series and Knockout Cup.

The Handicap Series is made up of 12-15 races, nominated by the club.  No one is obliged to run any, but the more you do the better chance of winning prizes at the end of the series.  For each race you run you get points depending on how you perform versus your predicted time (handicap) based on recent results.  At the end of the year the person with the most points from their best 6 races (2 short and 1 long plus best 3 others) wins.

The 10K and under series is much the same but you only need to run 3 races of 10K or shorter to qualify and it’s your best 3 results.

The Knockout Cup is drawn each year and then follows a grid format, with 64 members qualifying through various means.  You are then encouraged to take part in the same race as your opponent within the time limit set out on the grid.  The winner who progresses is the runner performing best against their handicap target.

Within the list we include 2 club only races – Reverse Handicaps* – which are held at – Walkington (10K) and North Newbald (5 miles).  We also have a winter race on a Sunday – the next one being South Dalton (5 miles) on 20th January 2019 which is a stand alone-event used for the final cup qualifiers.

The full list of the Club Handicaps for 2019 is now on the club site, along with the first round draw for the 2019 Cup and updated rules.

Our Younger Runners

Juniors

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 News Feed

Juniors at Humber Open Series track events.

The juniors took part in what for many of them was their first proper track event on Saturday 8th June, in the Humber Open Series at King George V Stadium in Grimsby. The coaches and parents were very impressed and proud of everybody who took part. Alfie amazed us all by running a fast U13 hurdles race without knocking any of them over. Jorja ran a PB for 1500m and then ran the 300m race too. Harriet and Lois ran fast 80m sprints, then a long 600m race, and finished up by blasting out quick 150m times. Emily H ran a great 1500m and followed it up with a 200m sprint. Corey came 2nd in his first ever 100m sprint, then cracked out 800m and 200m races too. George ran a couple of good races and found time to try high jumping in between. And Seb bashed out some quick 800m and 200m runs. Well done to all – everyone enjoyed the day out and finished smiling despite the cold and rain, so we’re hoping that more track events will become part of our regular schedule.
