Training with Bristol & West AC
Two of the Club’s main strengths are the variety of training venues we offer to suit most needs and the wide range of experience and qualifications possessed by our coaches.
We have UKA qualified coaches covering all disciplines, events and age groups. No other athletics club in the region can offer you the same range and quality of help and support. Moreover, we have unrivalled access to athletic facilities at the Kip Keino Athletics Stadium (Stoke Gifford – BS34 8LP) and Whitehall Athletics Arena (Whitehall BS5 9AZ).
If you join us at training at one of the tracks, please familiarise yourself with the Track rules. If you are not a current member of the club, please ensure that the coach running your session has access to your In Case of Emergency information and any relevant medical details (current members of the club should keep this information up to date in the membership database).
So wherever you live in Bristol, and whatever your chosen event or level of experience, our aim is to help you to enjoy athletics and achieve your potential.
