Welcome to the website of Staffordshire Moorlands AC

Norman Catley 1941 – 2020
The Club was saddened by the death of long-time supporter Norman on 22nd November 2020. Norman, with his wife, Doreen and friend Allan Bourne (who we also lost in August this year), were to be seen helping out at the finish line or marshalling on the course for most of our club races, in particular the Summer Series. As part of Biltmore Garments, which used to sponsor the club, Norman had a long connection with us. A quiet man with great dignity and always willing to help, he will be a great loss. Our sympathy goes to Doreen and the rest of the family.

So, where do we start? We have juniors, seniors and vets: complete novices and experienced competitors, park runners and ultra beasts.so, in short, we have something for everyone. 
We meet, we run, we put on races, we socialise, we enter races as part of our own individual training plans but we like to participate in team events. We have an active fell section, plenty of road runners and people who are just happy to be out there doing a bit. Mainly we just like to run, anywhere and anytime you like. 
Our training activities consist of 'Track Tuesday' at Birchall athletics track from 5.30 and 'Team Thursday' that runs at 6.30pm most weeks.

We also have Sunday social runs organised informally race dependant.

There is the Brough Park running club who run every Saturday morning at 9am and have training runs on Wednesday's from April to October - (broughparkrunningclub.co.uk
