Hawkinge Hurricanes are an all-ability club and we aim to provide structured, fun training for all.
We aim to support: Physical conditioning, Technical and Tactical drills, Lifestyle support, and Athlete development
These are athletes embarking on the new challenge of running. FUNdamental athletes will follow a 10 week walk/jog programme supported by the club coach and qualified leaders.
Over the 10-week training programme athletes will review good running technique and incorporate agility, balance and coordination ideas as part of appropriate warm-up’s. This group is just as it says in the title – fun. We all work as a team to achieve our goals.
We aim to provide a social, relaxed and fun environment to support all athletes to their full potential 🙂
This group is a progressive step from FUNdamental and it allows athletes to filter into the main core of the club whilst still being fully supported by club leaders.
Foundation group athletes will begin to follow the club training schedule which offers a definitive structure to training such as speed work, hill work, building endurance, and track and trail sessions.
We encourage a looping policy on our sessions so the group stays together and no athlete is left alone.
Event Group Development
This group is often divided into two Alpha and Omega.
This group are athletes working towards a specific goal or event.
This group is supported often on a 1-2-1 basis. The Event Group still train within the main body of the club.

Hi. My name is Sam. I’m the lead coach and founder of Hawkinge Hurricanes Running Club. Although Hawkinge Hurricanes was founded in 2016 my team and I have many years of coaching experience.
I got into running in the spring of 2011 and just 20 weeks later crossed the finish line of my first Half Marathon, hand in hand with a friend.
I joined a running club, met new people, and competed in all sorts of races from 5K to 100K – that was hard going! I have of course collected all the bling along the way too
I qualified as a UK Athletics Leader in Running Fitness in 2012 and have supported a varied group of athletes since then. Hawkinge Hurricanes aim to cater for all abilities of athletes in an inclusive environment. We have beginners courses to help you from the couch to 5K all the way up to Ultra Marathon distance
I qualified as a UK Athletics Coaching in Running Fitness this year and this has really given me an opportunity to provide appropriate and specific running goals for individual athletes as well as a structured training plan to our club sessions.
At Hawkinge Hurricanes we aim to provide a social, relaxed, and fun environment to support all athletes to their full potential – this often includes cake, curry, and maybe some alcohol 😉
