About Our Seniors

We welcome runners of any standard, age or ability who would like to join our club.  We pride ourselves on our 13254921_10208070467032222_7393211176619690413_owelcoming and friendly approach, as we were all new to the club once and we understand how daunting it can seem.  However, once you have experienced our lovely group for yourself you’ll wonder what you were worried about!

We suggest that before deciding to join the club, you come along to a few training sessions to see if the club is right for you. If you would like to do this, simply contact our Membership Secretary via email and just let them know a little bit about yourself and that you will be attending.

Training

12472591_10156774035590640_2079268723721521608_nIn September, the season begins with sessions taking place on a Wednesday at 6.30pm in woods just outside Silverstone. Then from October until April the sessions are held at 6.30pm at Silverstone Circuit.

From April onwards we switch to training on an athletics track at Stowe School where we train on Fridays at 6.30pm. Training continues up to just before the start of the school holidays, with a number of adhoc training sessions being held during August.

As well as the weekly training sessions, throughout the year, the club members host a weekly social run on a Sunday morning.  These are friendly, relaxed and fun group runs, which cover of a variety of distances from 5 miles upwards and generally end with well earned refreshments.  For up to date details of all of our training and Sunday runs, please see the Training page or the Silson AC Facebook page.
