Thinking of athletics or road, cross country or fell running? Are you new to the sport or more experienced – Wirral AC has friendly training groups to help everyone from all age groups from 8 upwards. In this page you will find the right group for you in running, jumping or throwing for whatever standard you are at.

Adults –  Look at our Improvers Running Group http://www.wirralac.co.uk/improvers-running-group/or our Senior Distance Running Group http://www.wirralac.co.uk/senior-distance-running-group/.  We also have a page dedicated to our Ladies Ladies’ Section

Children under 13 – We have 2 groups for children up to the age of 13. These groups give new athletes a chance to try all events including sprints, middle distance, cross country, throws and jumps – look at our Coaching page.

Teenagers – We have specialist groups in every discipline of athletics, so whoever inspired you from Usain Bolt or Mo Farah to Sophie Hitchon or Merseyside’s very own KJT, we can help you get started in your sport –  look at our Coaching page.
