About the Club

Welcome to the website of Leighton Buzzard Athletic Club.

Leighton Buzzard is a small town in Bedfordshire, near the borders of Bucks and Herts. The club has been established since 1976 and caters for anyone who wants to run; both seasoned athletes and those who just want to give running a try. 

The club has both junior and senior sections. 

Senior Section (16+)

There are two core training nights;

  • The main run is on Wednesday nights at 7.20 for a 7.30 departure from Tiddenfoot leisure centre. The emphasis of the night is on social running and sharing advice and experiences.Members have a variety of abilities, from those who occasionally win races, to those who have never run before, so there will always be someone around to keep you company!
  • There is also a interval session on Monday nights at 7.20 for a 7.30 departure which focuses on increasing speed over endurance events. Everyone is welcome to attend this too.

The club also has a thriving social side.Members meet in the Swan in the High Street after training every Wednesday (from around 9pm) and there are various social functions held throughout the year. read more

Lanzarote 2003

New Experiences Fourteen Years On
Or, Does Anyone Speak Welsh?

We walked around the crazy golf course at Club La Santa half a dozen times this year, and not once did we see Dave Webb. This however, was only one of a whole bundle of new things that happened to the Lanzarote team of 2003.

Every year there are murmurings of various people not going for one reason or another, exams, birthdays, finances, bad backs you name it. Yet despite all this, we had over twenty LBAC associates back to put themselves through the rigours of the International Challenge, whether they were running, watching or just having to hear about every tortuous stride.
