We run for FUn
Loughton Athletic Club is a friendly welcoming athletics club for all ages and types of athletes. We are proud to cater for beginners, those running for general fitness, and those competing at a good standard.
Our membership is drawn primarily from West Essex and East London with members living in Loughton, Chigwell, Buckhurst Hill, Epping, Theydon Bois, North Weald and Woodford as well as elsewhere in the Epping Forest area.
Some of our members simply want to run to keep fit by training as part of a group. The club actively encourages this type of participation. Many members participate in parkrun especially at Roding Valley.
We also offer competition opportunities within the club, in local leagues and at county, regional and national championships.
Currently we enjoy particularly strong veterans (over 40) men’s and women’s groups as well as a flourishing children’s section. We have an active and enthusiastic race walking group and are always keen to hear from people who wish to try this sport. Several of our members compete in triathlons, aquathlons and duathlons.
Loughton AC is affiliated to England Athletics for the following disciplines: Track & Field, Cross Country, Road Running, Race Walking, Hill & Fell. All our training sessions are led by England Athletics qualified coaches and run leaders.
