OUR TRAINING SESSIONs

< scroll to see other sessions >

On Monday evenings we meet at the School Lane Pavilion at 6.15pm with the aim of running at 6.30pm for between 6 and 7 miles / 60mins.

 

There are male and female changing rooms with showers and a place to leave bags and belongings during the run.

 

The session with usually be either an ‘Out and back run’ - where we run for a set period of time e.g. 30mins in one direction then return on the same route, or a ‘Circuit route’ with optional cut-offs (for runners who prefer a shorter distance).

 

You can usually find the planned run on the

Route and Race Calendar page of this website.
