Welcome to Northbrook Athletic Club.
Northbrook Athletic Club has been running since 1978, welcoming runners of all abilities and providing not only guided training runs but also a lively social calendar. With a current membership of around 160, Northbrook Athletic Club really is Coventry's friendliest running club! We are based at Jaguar Sports and Social Club on Browns Lane, Coventry.
We pride ourselves on being the kind of club that can help and encourage you to get the most out of your running, whether your interest is running for fun, getting fit, or training for anything from a 5K race to a marathon or even an ultra. We can help you achieve your aims.
For several years, we have been promoting our own Coventry Northbrook 10K race. Staged in July to coincide with the Allesley Festival, the race attracts a wide range of runners from local clubs and further afield. This year the event is on 8th July.
Anyone is welcome to come along to our training sessions and run - we have groups for everyone so you don't have to run alone and you won't get left behind. We organise evening runs and weekend runs, on and off road.
Runners are encouraged to stretch before and after every run for about 5 minutes, to prevent injuries. The main sessions feature a 1 to 2 mile warm up, and a similar cool down at an easy pace. The pace of a typical training session is worked out from your expected half marathon time. If this is unknown, then you can start very slowly and change the pace later, if necessary. As the weeks progress, the training runs generally increase in distance. Repetitions, intervals, hills and other sessions are also included if you want to increase your pace and endurance.
Northbrook has several qualified coaches who organise training sessions. Their qualifications include CIRF (coaching) and LIRF (for leaders).
Come along on a Wednesday night and see for yourself, it’s free for the first few sessions.
Wednesday night training – structured training sessions for runners of different standards, including intervals and hill repetitions. These sessions are at 7.15pm from Jaguar Sports and Social Club on Browns Lane, Coventry.
Wednesday Summer Handicap 5Km runs – the first Wednesday of every month from April to September, featuring staggered start times so the slowest competitors start first, and have an equal chance of winning the race. Visit the website at www.northbrookac.org.uk.
