Where and when do we train?
The Club is based at Tilsley Park, Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Tilsley Park is a sports centre situated close to the A34 on the outskirts of Abingdon. During the winter months some groups train indoors at local gyms and cross country groups train at nearby parks to train on a more suitable surface.
Our main training nights are Mondays and Wednesdays from approximately 6pm to 8pm (individual training groups may vary). In addition to these training nights some groups also run additional sessions on Fridays and Saturdays. See our track & training page for more information.
The Club has access to a range of UKA qualified coaches, covering most athletics disciplines. Our coaches have been DBS checked and offer their sessions free of charge. We also have a team of qualified officials who provide an essential service to our events.
Radley AC obtained Clubmark in March 2011 and are affiliated to the governing bodies of athletics in Britain and England which are UK Athletics and England Athletics respectively.
