About us
The adult group of Paddock Wood AC is a mix of enthusiasts supported by qualified coaches, we train and run for fun, for fitness, for mindfulness, for wellbeing, for the sport, and with the friends we make along the way.

We have three ability levels in our training and can accommodate anyone from parkrun level to much more experienced runner. Through the summer, we meet at the athletics track, adjacent to Putlands Leisure Centre, at Mascalls Court Road, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 6:30pm, where we warm-up, and we do one session per week on the athletics track, and one on the local roads.

We also meet at local Parkruns on Saturday, with the most popular being Malling, at Leybourne Lakes, and Tonbridge. On alternate Wednesdays we hold a strength and conditioning class at 7pm at Paddock Wood Community Centre, and a few times a year, we measure our fitness with a one-mile time trial at the athletics track. We encourage our runners to do other sessions independently to support their training.

Parkrun to 10K training
This training course will start on Tuesday 4 June, but if you can’t make this session, new joiners will be welcomed to start their four-week free trial throughout June either on the Tuesday or Thursday evenings, at 6:30pm. One Tuesday or Thursday session each week will be a speedwork focus on the athletics track, and the other will be a road run, which will build up to running and exceeding the 10K distance. The road session will be a steady run, but with some additional effort segments to help build your strength and endurance.

What you will need
The road sessions will be in daylight hours, but we recommend high-vis gilets and  weather-appropriate running clothes.
