Would you like to try out running with a local, friendly running club? Beeston AC (formerly Siemens AC) is a growing club (currently numbering over 120), whose members participate in road, cross-country and fell running. As well as running together, we like to socialise together. The Club runs three times a week and has full use of the changing rooms and showers at Chilwell Olympia:
Running as a group we always keep together, John and others are prepared to run and assist with new or slower members and faster runners will run up front and loop back at turning points
