Tuesday Training

We welcome new runners to join our training sessions. Please email our membership secretary, or simply follow the instructions below to join one of our Spond groups, and we’ll be in touch.

Spond invitations will go out at 5:00pm each Saturday evening, so get registered, and join the group or groups that suits your pace and distance. Don’t worry, your previous Spond registration is still valid and you won’t need to sign up again, just wait for the invitations to arrive on your smartphone.

To register with an Abbey running group you’ll need to download, install and register with Spond on your tablet or smartphone.

To install the App, so to the Apple App Store or Google Play store and search for Spond. Install the Run it.

Install it and run it.

Follow the instructions on the spond App to create an account. You can user your mobile number or email to register. You might find using your mobile telephone a bit easier than email account.

Once you’ve successfully installed the Spond app, registered, confirmed your registration via text or email and logged in, you’re ready to join the your running group

Joining a group will not automatically register you to run on a Tuesday, but once you’re a member of a group, you’ll receive a invitations to join events for that group. In this case, the Tuesday club run. Event invitations go out on Saturday evenings.

You can join more than one group, and you’ll receive invitations for each group you’re a member of. So If you’re a member of the red group and the blue group, you’ll receive invites to join the Tuesday club runs for both groups. Please don’t accept the invitation to more than the Tuesday run on the same week. If you accept an invitation by accident, or change your mind, you can remove yourself from that Tuesday’s run using the Spond App and someone on the waiting list can take your place.
