CLUB RUNS - WHEN AND WHERE?
Our BADRAT runners midweek club runs meet on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm.
Tuesday runs are are normally 5 mile road focused routes with varied meet points in and around Bridgwater to keep it interesting.
Wednesday we normally hold two runs on the same evening. One hitting various Quantock trails and the second classed as a "social run", meeting at our "BADRAT South" meet location
Thursday runs are usually 6 to 8 miles and more focused on continuous running (little to no stops). Meeting at our "BADRAT North" locations, detailed below.
Midweek evening runs are varied run sessions, with routes typically between 4 and 8 miles. Routes are planned in advance and advised through our social platforms, so you're never unsure of when/where to be and what you might expect. We like to mix road, path and trail, often in the same run (weather permitting)! Our primary aim is for you to have a fun and engaging running experience, within a like minded running community.
We also run weekends, often picking up a local Park Run on a Saturday morn, and on Sundays mornings where these are traditionally the 'longer runs' to help promote and improve our runner endurance. These are less regular but when arranged they are always in advance, so keep your eyes peeled on our socials!
But it doesn’t stop at physical runs around Bridgwater. Our belief is that a local running club should support you in all your runs, providing the same encouragement all the time and engaging with feedback, support and motivation. So, we do virtual running too. Challenges, fun-run-tasks and always encourage sharing your runs with us all so we can all share in your awesome achievements!
Thursdays @ 7pm
"BADRAT North" takes in routes around Chilton Trinity, Wembdon to Kingsdown and Bower Manor. In the summer months the river paths along the Parrett and picking up the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal are a favourite run route.
With routes typically between 6 and 7 miles dependant on the turnout and conditions and run over a set of local routes, so expect a mixture of road, path and trail, often in the same run!

BADRAT South typically takes in routes around North Petherton, Huntworth and North Newton and picks up paths/trails along the canal and through the woods of Kings Cliff.
Much the same with the North area, planned routes will be a mixture of surfaces for members to contend with and some hilly sections to tackle. Distances are more conservative, between 4 and 6 miles!
