Running with Steyning AC

7pm to 8pm on Tuesdays (Group Runs) and Thursdays (Intervals Sessions)


Leaders: Camilla Bishop, Shane Bridgeman, Adrian Brown, Liz Claridge, Gez Cummins, Carly Pretty, Andy Pumfman, Claire Ridley, Phillipa Ritchie.


TUESDAY: A session aimed at anyone who would like to get into running, those who want to push themselves to run quicker, or those who enjoy a social group run. We split into groups covering a range of paces/distances at the start, and run a set route. We currently meet on Steyning Cricket Field (near the tennis courts).


THURSDAY: Suitable for runners of all levels who are looking to improve their times, from 5km to Ultra-Marathon. Coached outdoor sessions around Steyning and the South Downs. Interval training incorporating speed, resistance and technique. Meet at the Steyning AC Clubhouse on Charlton Street.


Runners looking to join us for the first time must contact us to let us know they are planning to attend. You will be welcome to attend for 3 or 4 taster sessions before deciding whether or not to join the club.


Some events in which Steyning AC participate:

West Sussex Fun Run League (WSFRL) – from 5km to 10km with many events over the South Downs. A wide variety of paces, so all are welcome at any speed. Scoring incorporates ‘performance’ points with 10 for each of the first 10% finishers, 9 for the next 10% of finishers etc, and EVERY runner scores 1 participation point for their club (to a maximum of 25), so just taking part earns the club points.
