Teesdale Athletic Club

Welcome to Teesdale Athletic Club

Established in 1984, Teesdale Athletic Club is an athletics and running club based in Barnard Castle

Teesdale Athletic Club is a friendly athletic club for people of all ages and abilities, who live in Barnard Castle and the surrounding Dales. The club was established in 1984 and while we mainly cater for road running, the club takes great pride in supporting boys and girls from the age of 5 years and juniors up to 17 years old in a full range of sporting activities. We have athletes competing in National Cross Country Championship races, fell running and also an active Track and Field group, not forgetting orienteering too.

The club also runs its very own beginners course aimed at people who want to run but have little or no experience how to set about doing it. Our popular Couch to 5K (C25K) program is designed for people who are maybe a little embarrassed to go out for a run, or who have not been physically active for a long time and do not want to join an exercise group that will leave you feeling ill and completely exhausted at the end of the session. If you would like to learn more about our C25K program we would love to hear from you. You can read some testimonials from recent C25K runners here.

Joining Teesdale Athletic Club gives you the opportunity to meet like minded people and to participate in one of our regular group training sessions. We have a highly experienced and qualified coaching team who lead each training session. We strongly believe regular and structured training helps improve performance at the same time as promoting well-being and a heathy mind. Details of each of the training sessions are shown below, just click on the image to learn more. In addition to the structured training sessions, many club members meet up 9:00am every Sunday morning at the Teesdale Leisure Centre in Barnard Castle for a social run. Routes are normally in the local area and decided on the day.

We are affiliated to UK England Athletics, so all eligible club members can obtain personal registration at the same time as taking advantage of many other benefits provided.
