From Social Runner to International Athlete

Dacorum and Tring Athletics Club

Has something for you

Track and Field

The backbone of Dacorum & Tring AC is its’ track and field section, which boasts over 300 active members, from 9 years of age through to veteran athletes in the 60+ category. There are 23 track and field coaches, of whom 5 are ex-international athletes. Children progress through the U11 and U13 groups into the development squad or into the event specific squads. However, new members can be placed accordingly and are welcome to join at any time of the year. 

Road running

The Dacorum & Tring AC Road Runners club is open to all standards of runners (both male and female) in a safe and friendly atmosphere. We meet at the Athletics track at Jarman Park, Hemel Hempstead, every Tuesday and Thursday from 6.30pm. As we cater to a wide range of athletic abilities and aspirations (hares and tortoises), you’ll always be able to find a suitable running mate.

We train on the roads and footpaths around Hemel Hempstead and on the track, running from 2 to 8 miles each session. There are always several groups of varying speeds and abilities, from pure beginners to keen marathoners, and each group is led by England Athletics ‘Leadership in Running’ coaches.

New members from 16 years and up are always welcome, regardless of ability, and you don’t have to commit yourselves immediately; just try us out for a couple of weeks to ensure we meet with your approval!

Although competing in races is not essential, we are currently in Division 1 of the Chiltern Cross Country League, which involves five races throughout the winter months, and we also participate in local, regional and national road running events.

We are open to all members of the community, from those who just want to run for pleasure and to keep fit, to athletes who enjoy the competitive aspect of the sport and thrive on competition.

Cross Country

Dacorum & Tring AC athletes participate keenly in cross-country throughout the autumn and winter, with runners from age 10 all the way up to veterans in the V60+ category contesting the highly-competitive Chiltern League series; many youngsters also take part in the Northwest London Young Athletes (NWLL) League. The club has had considerable success at county and national level over the years, and our coaches encourage their athletes to take part, to build strength and endurance for the summer athletics season.

The five annual Chiltern League fixtures take place from October through February, and are held on Saturdays; Dacorum & Tring compete in Division 1, the top tier of the Chiltern League, which in itself is considered one of the top leagues in the country.

The Northwest London League, for runners between the ages of 10 and 17, also consists of five events and takes place on Saturdays.

While cross-country often involves mud, hills and adverse weather conditions, it’s also a lot of fun! The Middle Distance Squad and the Road Running section in particular incorporate cross-country into their winter training schedules and runners of all levels take part, to earn points for the team and to have a good day out
