Thursday Speed Sessions

** JUNE 2021 UPDATE **
Our Thursday evening Track sessions will re-commence effective from Thursday 17th JUNE 2021.

 As previously, Leeds Beckett University will be charging the club directly for each track session. Abbey Runners will then request payment from each participant on a regular basis for the sessions attended. As the club will be charged a flat fee irrespective of numbers, please be aware that Abbeys who accept and then cancel a place for the track session on Spond may still be invoiced for the session.

All of our sessions are Covid secure in accordance with current England Athletics guidelines and conform to track and trace requirements. 

Please see the calendar at the bottom of this page for what we’ve got planned each Thursday. 

We’ve moved to organising these sessions on Spond, you can sign up to the Thursday Speed Sessions Spond group using the code ECBDK or use this Join Thursday Speed Sessions link from your tablet or smartphone.  

As ever, places will be given on a first come, first served basis.

The new changed format continues.

UKA have advised that we can now have larger groups to each coach/run leader. Therefore, rather than having the 2 time slots, we are all going to meet at 7.20pm. The warm up jog will now be included in the session.

We will still be following the same precautions to reduce the risk of spreading COVID, such as social distancing and session plans designed to allow for this.

Please do not come to the session if you or any member or your household is unwell with any coronavirus symptoms, i.e. new cough, temperature of loses of sense of smell or taste.

We will also need to keep a record of everyone at the session for track and trace purposes.
