What We Do

As a club we meet at Havant Leisure Centre. On a Tuesday at 6:30PM, for an informal 'let's go for a run' type session and on Thursday at 6PM for an organised training session, normally taken by a SEAA qualified coach.

We compete in a wide range of on and off road events. Ranging from traditional road races such as the Stubbington 10K and the Great South Run to the wet and boggy delights of both the Hampshire Cross Country League and 'Today's Runner' Cross-Country League.

During the summer months we organise a number of 'handicap' races designed to give all members of the club regardless of ability the chance to compete in a competition that is designed to be as even as possible.

Who We Are

Victory Athletic Club (VAC) is a small, independent friendly running club.

Formed in 1982 we are an active club, offering members varied training sessions and internal competitions, as well as opportunities to run for the club in regional team events.

The Club is based in Havant, near Portsmouth on the south of England, we have a membership of nearly 250.

In additional to training and races we also have a number of social events throughout the year, which non-running family and friends come along to as well.

'Victory 5k to 10k' running programme

Victory AC prides inself on being a 'club for all'!
We have members of all running abilities and the overriding attitude is that we are all sharing our enjoyment for the same thing. We do have members who have won medals at International events and competed in Team GB, and we also have members who just come along for the companionship of running with others and to keep fit. With the full range of runner in between!
Several of our current membership have taken up running after completing 'new runner' course or followeed the NHS promoted 'Couch to 5k' scheme.

Victory AC recognise the benefit of these schemes. As we have just come to the end of a 5k course, we are delighted that our coaching team will be providing a seven week course aiming at runners who want to successfully complete 10k (6.2 miles).

This is aimed at individuals who can run 5k but not 10k.

It will take place on Tuesday evenings from 4th April 2017, 6.30pm - 7.30pm from Havant Leisure Centre (the same time and place as the main Victory AC Club run).

There is no cost, though all participants must be members of Victory AC for the duration

Membership is just £16 pa, and membership forms can be downloaded from here.

If you are interested in joining, please contact us.

All you need is a pair of trainers and the desire to run....
