Training Schedules

 Posted by at 7:33 am  Add comments
Club Runs take place every Tuesday evening from Holt Park Active

Meeting time:  is at 7:20 for a 7:30 departure running in pace-based groups

New joiners: We recommend that the first time you run with us that you arrive 5-10 minutes earlier and come inside the foyer to meet us and find out who to run with.

Clothing and equipment: Road runners must wear clothing with Hi-Viz strips or colours 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.

  • 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.
  • All runners to be courteous to other users of Holt Park Active facilities and please ALWAYS leave a gangway to get past us.
  • Faster group members 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,.
Thursday Speed Sessions (September – October 2014)

We will alternate between track and road sessions (for which we will meet at the new club HQ at Holt Park Active). All sessions will start at 7.30pm prompt: please meet at 7.20pm.

When we are running on the fields, you should consider the possibility of things getting a little bit muddy and select your footwear accordingly!

On the alternate weeks, we will run an ‘Intervals’ or ‘Reps’ session on the track (meet at the track).

All sessions will start at 7.30pm prompt: please meet at 7.20pm.
