CLUB RUNS - WHEN AND WHERE?
We're the BADRAT runners, a friendly running club that meets midweek on Wednesday at 6:45 PM and Thursday at 7 PM.
On Wednesdays, we run in North Petherton, covering a distance of 3 to 5 miles. The runs are open to all levels and a little more challenging, with some hills and occasional light trail included.
On Thursdays, we run in Bridgwater and cover a distance of 5 to 7 miles with a focus on continuous running (with minimal stops). We may also add in some technical training, such as hills, intervals, and "Fartleks" if you're interested.
We always plan our routes and meeting points in advance and share the details on our Strava group and social platforms, so you'll be kept informed and always know when and where to meet.
We also have occasional weekend runs, usually a local park run on Saturday mornings and longer runs on Sunday mornings to help improve endurance. We'll announce these in advance on our social media.
Stay updated on our club run plans by checking our Facebook page, groups, and Strava Club for further details. We're always running together, even when we're not!

We usually gather on Thursday at West Quay car park in Bridgwater. Our runs usually take us through Chilton Trinity, Wembdon, Durleigh, Kingsdown and Bower Manor. During the summer, we like to run along the Parrett River and the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal.
