Thursday Speed Sessions

During the National Lockdown, in line with EA guidance, we’re sorry to say our socially distanced have been suspended. We hope to be back as soon as  we can, and in the meantime don’t let your running shoes gather dust. There are plenty of trails and pavements to pound.

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.
