Beginners Running Club! Starting 7th April! All Welcome!

Beginners Running Club! Starting 7th April! All Welcome!

After the Stafford Half Marathon at the weekend and the opening for entries to the first Stafford 10k, along with the lighter nights.

There is no better time than now to start running!

There are various running clubs throughout the town and all cater for all abilities.

Starting Thurs 7th April, Beaconside Sports Centre will be starting their new beginners wave. Week one is just one minute jogging with 90 seconds recovery repeated.

Bright clothes are compulsory and due to mustering, we cater for all abilities.

We run every Thurs from 6.30pm and the sessions last for one hour.

Speed doesn’t matter at all as the faster ones run ahead and come back.

We also have very good links with other local running groups like Stafford Harriers and Rising Brook Runners should anyone start running and find they want to progress even more.

No need to pre register but do arrive slightly early for your first session so that you can fill out a membership form.

Sessions are free for members and £2.20 for non members

Any questions, please contact 01785 353286

Calm Before the Storm- Show huge success for Stafford’s Boxing Scene!

Calm before the Storm was Stafford’s biggest boxing even for over 5 years. On the show we interviewed local Boxer Matt Davies and you can listen to his interview by clicking on the link below.

The show was organised by LS Boxing Club and held at Beaconside Sports Centre.

Below are a few words from Matt himself…
Thanks to Stafford FM for covering the bout, the bout has been a long time coming around but on the whole I would say it was a successful night! The lads were buzzing with their wins none more so than me! Nobody expected to walk out and knock their guys out in the fashion we did, but we trained hard and it was well deserved. There will be many more shows in stafford, hopefully in August, but we will be fighting in bouts out of town in the mean time. Stafford LS Boxing Club runs on Tuesday at 7.30 and at 7.00 pm the rest of the weekdays. Everybody welcome for fitness or to fight! Great bunch of lads at all levels please don’t hesitate to pop in.
