When & where does the Totley AC fast group meet?
The Totley AC Tuesday fast group meets every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm, returning at around 8pm:
- In the Spring / Summer – at the Totley AC Club Hut (Lane Head Rd, Totley, Sheffield S17 3AZ) for off-road running
- In the Autumn / Winter – at the Hammer & Pincers pub (Ringinglow Rd, Bents Green, Sheffield S11 7PW) for road running
As a rule of thumb, we move to the Hammer & Pincers shortly before the clocks change, and back to the Club Hut shortly after they change back, although this depends on the weather
