Welcome to Running and Athletics
Team Surrey Running & Athletics Club is a club open to all abilities and standards. We offer training and guidance that can benefit both those looking to compete at high standards and partake in BUCS competitions, as well as those wanting to maintain their fitness whilst getting to know others with the same interest. Our training caters for all types of individuals by offering weekly casual runs, circuit training sessions and having close ties with Guildford and Godalming AC.
We send athletes hoping to compete on a more serious level to GGAC to receive specialist training and coaching, with access to a track. Our training also covers those who simply enjoy a casual run as well as serious sprinters and endurance athletes.
Everyone is welcome and socials are a great opportunity to allow everybody to get to know one another. The Athletics & Cross Country Club is widely accessible as running is a brilliant sport that is easy to partake in and provides an easy way of keeping fit whilst you are at uni! Whether you want to train for a Parkrun or for the London Marathon, we are here to encourage and support you.
Monday Social Run
Our social run, or Monday Runday as it’s known by most, is a great opportunity to run and meet other runners of all levels. Routes are picked by trusted members of the club and the 5 groups range in pace from jog/walk to 5 min/km.
We meet outside Simply Fresh every Monday at 6.30 pm
Tuesday Track Session
For those looking for speed work or a club training session, many of us have joined the local athletics club, GGAC, and join in with their sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday.
Speak to the committee if you’re interested in getting involved!
5.30 pm every Wednesday afternoon in Rubix.
We turn the dance floor into stations and use the speakers to energize your workout. It’s led by fellow students and tailored to strengthen running-specific muscle groups.
Friday Speed/Hill work
The aim of the session is to improve your running performance with drills and session work. We’ll announce the plan for the session each week on instagram and anybody is welcome to join us. no matter the level!
Meet 6.30 pm outside Simply Fresh every Friday!
With the local parkrun happening just a stones throw away in Stoke Park, there’s often a nice group of students that roll out of bed to attend each week. Whether you want to make your own way there or walk over with us from campus feel, we’d love to see you out there!
