Welcome to the Road running section of Boston and District Athletics Club.
Training sessions are on Tuesdays at
our training facility-"The B-Hive", Punchbowl Lane, Boston.

The road runners meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Training will begin at approximately 7p.m and finish around 9 p.m.
The Tuesday sessions consists of a short warmup session inside The Hive and then
a steady run, over various routes, normally between 30 minutes and one hour in
duration. All routes have cut off points, should anyone wish to run a
shorter distance, and no one, no matter how slow, are ever left on their own.
All abilities are most welcome. To interested newcomers thinking of giving
us a go, please be reassured that not all club runners are elite athletes!
We have a vast range of abilities, from the faster athletes to the slowest of
joggers-there is no need to feel intimidated in the slightest!
The Thursday session will integrate with the Track and Field section of the club
and will consist ,primarily ,of conditioning type training, such as our famous
"Bleep test", circuits, shuttle runs and strength building activities. The
club has always emphasised this type of winter build up and found it to be vital
to build speed, strength and endurance and create a solid base for successful,
injury free running. It's also great fun!
These nights also provide a social focal point for our runners, where races can
be sorted out, training discussed, stories shared, or advice sought from the
club's coaches or more experienced runners.
On weekends where we are not competing in any races, there is normally a run
sorted out among members on a Sunday. This will normally be an easy run of
between one and one and a half hours, typically starting around 9 a.m. and
finishing between 10a.m and 10.30a.m, giving everyone plenty of time to get back
for the Sunday roast! When a Sunday run is taking place, I will endeavour
to get the location and start time issued on the website at least 3/4 days in
advance, or, alternatively, either email or phone me towards the end of the week
for any information.
A list of races which members may think of competing in will be issued on the
website regularly. These are only suggestions and if any member has a race
they are interested in competing in, please let me know-I'm sure other members
may be interested also. Remember, ability is not important-all the races
cater for runners of a huge range of ages and speeds. If several members
are competing in the same race it also creates the opportunity to share cars and
cut down on costs, which, in the present economic climate, may be welcomed!
In the winter months, in addition to road races, many members relish the
challenge of mixing it in the dirt and mud! Boston and District A.C. are
members of two cross country leagues - The Lincolnshire League and The North
Midland League, which provide an extensive programme of races throughout the
winter months. Again ability is not important, with many of our sprinters
and throwers, from the Track and Field section of the club using the races to
boost endurance, along with our distance athletes and road runners!
Details of the races can be found in the Events section.
