Helensburgh Amateur Athletic Club
….inspiring participation, progress and performance
We love to run. We love the high after a run and we love where we run.
We are located in the west of Scotland, 25 miles west of Glasgow, nestling between the north shore of the river Clyde and hills that overlook Loch Lomond. We have no shortage of beautiful scenery to help motivate you whilst out running.
HAAC is a friendly and welcoming club aimed at helping to develop and inspire the athlete in every member and providing each member with support in the fulfilment of their own individual goals.
We cater for runners of all abilities from beginners to winners. The club has over 60 members and a wide mix of (over-18) ages and abilities, split roughly 50/50 between male and female.
Our training nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesday nights we focus on speed work. Our Thursday sessions are trail runs and cover terrain similar to and including “From Hel n Back,” our September hill race and invariably include mud, banter and laughs.
We also enjoy regular social events - from group participation in races to dinners out.
Membership is extremely good value with benefits including:
- Only one annual membership fee – there is no additional fee to use our clubhouse facilities on training nights, unlike many other clubs;
- The club covers the entry costs for West District and Nationals cross country.
So if you like the idea of enjoying athletics with like-minded and supportive individuals why not give us a go? Please feel free to come along and try us out before you join the club. Just drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know when you will be coming to the club. We can then make sure that someone will meet with you to determine which of our training groups would be best for you to join.
To join or renew your membership simply pay using credit or debit card, click on the "Sign-up for Helensburgh AAC" button at the top left of the text and go to the entry page.
If you feel that the membership fee is a barrier to joining then please contact the membership secretary to discuss options, this will be treated in confidence.
