Training

Christmas Break:

There will be no scheduled training sessions on Monday 23rd, Wednesday 25th and Monday 30th December 2019 as well as Wednesday 1st January 2020.

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 a chat along the way. There are no structured training elements on Mondays. There will be two groups with one set at 4 – 5 miles in length, the other 6 – 7 miles, both of which will be lead by a qualified run leader who will shorten or extend the routes appropriately depending on those who attend each week. The 6 – 7 mile group has a 3 month summer and winter programme, please scroll down to the bottom to see dates and venues.

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 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 miles in an hour. 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. 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. A range of training sessions are completed including intervals, kenyon hills, drills, tempo, threshold and much more.

Please check the news feed before you attend training as on 2-3 occasions per year we have training at alternative venues
