Due to current COVID19 restrictions, please email sdrrchairperson@gmail.com if you wish to come along to try out the club so that arrangements can be made for you.

On Monday and Wednesday evenings we meet at Greenbank Leisure Centre from 6.45pm, aiming to leave for our runs at 7pm. We cater for beginners as well as seasoned pro’s during our sessions by offering several options on our training nights. Please note that we do not train on bank holiday mondays.

Monday nights (excluding bank holidays)
They are ideal if you just want to jog and have a chat along the way. There are no structured training elements on Mondays. There is one group that covers around 6 miles and alternates runs based at Greenbank or another venues around Swad. These runs are for members only due to the varying locations.

Wednesday Nights
There are four groups on our Wednesday evening sessions

The Social Group: For new or experienced runners who just want to go for a jog and a chat along the way over a distance of 3-4.5 miles depending on the ability of runners that attend each week.

The Intermediate Group: For runners who want to add some structure to their training and can complete 4.5-5.5 miles in an hour at a comfortable pace. Sessions rotate between the following categories: Speed, Hill & Steady.

The Upper Group: For runners who want to add some structure to their training and can complete 5.5-7 miles in an hour at a comfortable pace. Sessions rotate between the following categories: Speed, Hill & Steady and offer a more intense option than the intermediate group.

The Advanced Group: For more experienced runners who want a structured training program and can complete 7 or more miles in an hour at a comfortable pace. A range of training sessions are completed including intervals, kenyon hills, drills, tempo, threshold and much more. This group meets at Conkers Discovery carpark.
