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

Marathon Training at 8am from Havant Leisure Centre
We are delighted to be offering a marathon training programme on Sunday mornings led by Paul Spooner and Beth Pirie
Geared towards a Spring marathon: primarily Brighton,London and Southampton, these sessions will provide incremental long runs with like minded - and hopefully similarly paced runners looking at increasing their milage.
Perfect if you have booked a Spring 2017 marathon, but also suitable if you just want to improve your distance running.
Paul is a 100 Marathon Club member and Beth has completed several ultra's including 100 mile and 24 hour races.
The sessions started on Sunday 8th January at 8am from Havant Lesure Centre with a 12 mile flat run.
Please note: We recommend that you are able to run at least 10 miles to come along to these sessions.
Depending on who expresses an interest and turns up as to how the sessions will work out with regard to pacing groups
[Non Victory AC Members are welcome to come along and join us too!]
For more information see our marathon training page, or email Paul & Beth on firstname.lastname@example.org
'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,

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