Training Schedules

 Posted by at 7:33 am  Add comments

Club Runs take place every Tuesday evening meeting at Adel War Memorial Association sports and social club

Location map here 

Meeting time is at 7:20 for a 7:30 departure running in organised groups

New joiners: It is suggested that runners new to the club arrive 10 minutes earlier and come inside the club entrance to meet us and find out who to run with.

Clothing and equipment:  Road runners should wear clothing with High Visibility strips during the winter months when we will be running in the dark.  Road groups also do some trail running in spring, summer and autumn months, but road or trail shoes are typically fine for the local trail terrain.

Off Road and Fell runners need to wear suitable clothing and bring required equipment.

Please note:

  1. Groups can set off together and should stay together, meeting at appropriate intervals to allow everyone to catch up.  Groups can split part way around a club run provided this is agreed explicitly at a meeting point and groups do not become fragmented or risk losing runners.
  2. All runners to be courteous to other users of Adel War Memorial facilities and please ALWAYS leave a gangway to get past us.
  3. Faster group members s generally know each other anyway and so a fixed meeting point is less critical but it will help if they keep clear of the formation of the less rapid groups so we don’t confuse beginners or runners with less confidence,.
