The club also has exclusive use of the track for a club session on Saturday mornings from 10.00am until 12.00noon.

Access to these club sessions and to individual and group coaching comes as part of the club membership subscription no additional track entry fee is needed to be paid.

Countryside

Lewes is located in the heart of the Sussex Downs is on the River Ouse and is in the recently designated South Downs National Park.

It can only be expected therefore that the club takes maximum use of the town’s location to train on the Downs and along the River.

In the summer evenings and at weekends there are many training sessions taking place in the countryside.

On the first Tuesday of the month throughout the year there is a ‘Point to Pint’ run organised from a local countryside pub. Different pubs are chosen to start a run of about 45-50 minutes ended back at the pub for a pint, meal and a chat.

Club base

The club has its club room next to the 400m running track located to the rear of the Lewes Leisure Centre at the end of Mountfield Road, Lewes. BN7 2XG. Club members and coaches can be contacted after 7:00pm at the track on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Indoor facilities

Lewes AC has a range of indoor training facilities that are available to club members.
The club makes use of the Sports Hall, Gymnasium and Projectile Hall all located in the Lewes Leisure Centre next to the all weather track in Mountfield Road, Lewes.

In the main the indoor facilities are used for circuit training during the winter months.
The Gymnasium is used also during the winter months for indoor athletics and as a training base for the under 11 young athletes group.

The sports hall is also used on an occasional basis to hold one off indoor athletic events.

During the winter months the projectile hall at the Leisure Centre was booked between 8.00pm and 9.00pm for circuit work aimed at core stability and strength development.  Adults were invited to join in and work with the under 17 and under 20 group who already train in the hall.  For future winter sessions it is planned to organise the same arrangements.

Elsewhere on this web site the times for the use of the indoor facilities at the Leisure Centre during the winter months will be displayed.
