Training sessions

Location and Times

The club meets at  Astley Sports Village, Dukinfield, Tameside, Greater Manchester SK16 5BL (map) on Monday and Wednesday evenings. We usually meet in the dining hall (at the far end of the corridor from reception) from 18:15 to set off at about 18:30.


Please park at Cromwell School, adjacent to Astley (the car park is through the first gate on the right coming up Yew tree Lane, just after the first speed bump) and then walk the short distance to Astley so that the members of Astley Sports Village don't have trouble parking. If the gate for Cromwell is closed please come in via the third gate and go left, round the side of the building to park at the rear. There is a blue rear door that takes you to the corridor.

New Runners & Guests

New runners and guests are always welcome to come along and run with us. Please see our New Runners page for full details.

Other training

In addition to club nights, groups of members often meet up informally at other times to run, swim or cycle. Friday evenings and saturday mornings are usually popular but, if you are new to the club, please come to a club night first to get to know us.
