Wednesday Training

6.30pm start time

Every week is different, a mixture of running, sprint work, hill training, pair work etc – we like to try and keep things interesting. We cater for all abilities so don’t be shy and give us a try – we have several groups who run at different paces. 

Runners of all abilities are welcome with several different groups catering for all standards.  Each week the groups tend to meet in different locations, apart from when we all run from the Massey Ferguson social club on Broad lane on the first Wednesday of the month. Please contact us for the latest training location information.

12-14 min mile Group: Between 3 and 5 miles run (approx 35-40 min 5k)

11-12 min mile Group: Between 4 and 5 miles run (approx 34-37 min 5k)

10-11 min mile Group: Between 5 and 6 miles run (approx 31-34 min 5k)

8.5-10 min mile Group:  Between 6 and 6.5 miles run (approx 26-31 min 5k)

7.5-8.5 min mile Group: Between 6 and 8 miles run (approx 21-26 min 5k)

Others groups are periodically formed throughout the year dependent on athlete targets.

No one is obliged to run with the same group each week and you can choose what you feel up to on a weekly basis.

Wednesday Coached Training Session

6.30pm start time 

This is a mixed ability coach led training session which caters for all paces. We head out on an easy group warm up run of approximately a mile followed by a series of running skills and drills to prepare for the session ahead.

The main session is conducted on a loop so nobody can get lost and generally consists of reps for around 20minutes. The reps can be time based or distance based and are different every week. This really is a great session to help improve your race pace.

Sunday Training

8:30am Start time

We offer a mixed ability coached cross country training session. The session is entirely on grass and features a mix of both uphill and downhill running to help improve your running form, strength and speed. THIS SESSION IS CURRENTLY POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Several unofficial long runs also take place each Sunday at varying times from and locations ranging from 20 mile road runs during the marathon training season to 7 mile off road runs and everything inbetween. Please talk to one of our members for more information.
