Running

BUAC Cool Runnings is the running club for everyone! We take immense pride in helping all members to achieve their goals, whether that’s running your first mile, conquering a Marathon, or simply having a good time at our weekly socials. Members can freely pick and choose which sessions to attend, and we welcome new members at any time. All of our sessions are designed to accommodate all abilities. Set up in 2009, our membership base has grown year on year. Our 2016/17 running highlights include Birmingham 10k, our training weekend away and the launch of Great Run Local, which culminated in achieving the impact award at the end of year sports ball. Join Cool Runnings because we make running fun!
