Welcome to the website of Staffordshire Moorlands AC
Important Announcement (August 2016) - We are going to start culling the membership of people who have not paid their subs. Subs are due on 1st April each year, and as of today we have 60 people who have not responded to repeated reminders to pay by email. Most of the 60 are affiliated to UKA and we have paid their dues for that out of our funds. Please note that being removed from the membership of the club will not free you of the debt, and you will be unable to join another club, or rejoin this club before the arrears are fully paid. If you have not paid this year, please do so immediately, unless the Membership Secretary has already made arrangements with you.
Whether you are a seasoned runner or are just starting out, Staffs Moorlands has something for you. The Club is based at Leek in Staffordshire in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands. It is set in some of the most beautiful scenery in the country and draws its membership from the surrounding area as well as nearby Stoke On Trent and Buxton.
The club members take part in races both locally and throughout the country, including the London marathon and the Great North Run. Some members take part in races abroad, including the Reims half marathon in France and the Amsterdam races in Holland, as well as fell world championships and other races.
The club has very active adult men's, ladies' and junior sections. Staffs Moorlands trains at both Leek and at Northwood Stadium at Stoke on Trent. For Junior details see our Junior page.
This race will continue but not as a SMAC event. Please see this announcement for more details.
I'd like to know something about the races that SMAC puts on:
- Summer Series
- Leek Half
- Christmas Cracker
Tell me about Affiliation to UKA. What does it mean and do I need it?
