The Lancon AC sits under the Constabulary Sports & Wellbeing Club and therefore you need to be a member of the Lancashire Constabulary Sports & Wellbeing Club first, to be a member of the Lancon AC.

 

A subscription needs to be paid monthly through police payroll or police pensions. It may also be paid annually in full if you are a retired 'police staff' member.


The Sports and Wellbeing Club kindly provides funding support to all members to take part in competitions including the affiliation to England Athletics.

Lancon AC

All members of LCSWC can join Lancon AC free of charge as part of their main Sports Club membership.


You may also be affiliated to Lancon AC with England Athletics. Either directly or through another running Club. Affiliation is not compulsory but it does offer you reduced price entry fees at races and allows you to compete under the Lancon AC name and wear a Club vest in open races. The cost is only circa 20 a year.


If you are not affiliated you would either enter open races as 'unaffiliated' or "2nd Claim" if you are a member of another running Club. You would also be able to represent LanconAC in 'closed' Club races such as the NPCCL.

Training Sessions



Lancon CrestStructured, weekly Club Training Sessions no longer take place at HQ.


Traditionally, as the 'Club'is spread across Lancashire the Lancon AC members tend to train in their own time maybe in small, pre-arranged groups.


These can be arranged adhoc, aimed to develop all levels of runner including new or novice runners.

The sessions are for anyone at any level as the group all work at the same time but at their own pace and effort.

Anyone interested in resurrecting these 'informal sessions' then please contact Steve Broadbent. They can be at any site in Lancashire at any time or duration depending on choice.
