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.

Marathon Training starting Sunday 8th January 2017 at 8am from Havant Leisure Centre

We are delighted to be offering a new 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 will start on Sunday 8th January at 8am from Havant Lesure Centre with a planned 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!]
