Training on Thursday Evenings

Our Thursday Runs

We are fortunate to have a number of qualified coaches and run leaders in the club.  We aim to have a structured coaching session of around one hour each Thursday.  ALL ABILITIES WELCOME. Meet at the Parklangley Club (44A Wickham Way, Beckenham, BR3 3AF)  at 7:15pm for a 7:30pm start.   During the summer, we run the coaching sessions from Sparrows Den.  More information will appear below as these are scheduled. 

On the Last Thursday of each month  throughout the year – Naked Run from the Parklangley Club. You are asked to estimate your time for a run of approximately 5 miles; the runner finishing closest to their estimated time wins the prize kitty. All good fun for a £2 contribution: £1 goes to the prize kitty and £1 to the collection for the charity chosen by BVAC members for the year. Please come clothed, but without your watch!! Be there by 7:15pm for a 7:30pm start  to register and check the route map. 

For information on this week's run please see the calendar or our facebook page where the routes are often posted.

    Another mild, dry evening with a good turnout. We were pleased to welcome guests Andrew Culver and former member Linda Whiteley. The route was 4.79 miles. Peter Howe was first home in an impressive time of 35:21, almost 5 minutes under his estimate. (Please don't land yourself with stress fractures again, Peter!) The kitty was won by Joan Allen, whose estimate was only 30 seconds under her finishing time.
    £14 was raised for our charity,  A Mile in Her Shoes.

      BVAC Naked run - 29 Sep 2016

      A great turnout on a warm , dry evening. The course was 3.1 miles to allow those due to tackle the Tonbridge half-marathon the following Sunday an easy run.
      With breathtaking precision, both Phil and Bernie were just 1 second out with their estimates and shared the prize kitty.
