Training

See how we train!

Thanks to the club coaches, we have a varied weekly training programme and we have amazing facilities right on our doorstep!

Kidderminster is home to a brand new Leisure Centre with 25m swimming pool and Stourport has a one mile closed cycle circuit and athletics track, plus parks and canals for running.

Nearby Wyre Forest is our weekly winter base for off road cycling & running and in the summer, only a few miles away are 2 lakes - Lakeside Campus (formerly Top Barn Activity Centre) and Upton Warren - where members take advantage of the shallow, warm waters for their open water swimming.

Road cycling is also really well catered for with the Stourport Cycle Track which is perfect for beginners plus the beautiful Worcestershire countryside with some fantastic hills and quiet country lanes.
