Club Training

The new club season kicks off in earnest next week…..the club provides members with TWO official training session per week, there are lots of other training sessions with various What's App Groups



Monday @ 6pm - Speed Training with Donie assisted by Danny in the Cricket Field. This is speed training, in groups, which should be used to improve your race pace in the build up to your target race. This is suitable for all levels as it is designed by time rather than distance so no one is left out. Donie is also available to give individual programmes if required. Currently we are doing hills to prepare for the cross country and the longer distance races that are coming up.


We will move to the All Weather Hockey Pitch on 2nd Oct at 6pm


Wednesday @ 6.30pm – two groups “Couch to 5k” AND “all-others”, meet up at the main shop entrance to the Co-Op Stores in Market Green. 


This NEW TIME  of 6.30 is in response to a popular demand for an earlier start to training.



The "all others" group warm up and limber/stretch for 15 minutes before heading  off for  group runs at various suitable paces and distances. This will be let by Edmond.

This is a nice social run and is where most of you started and made friends. We encourage you to do the same for others who have joined since and need to be made feel welcome. . The “all others” group will do hill/pace/fartlek/interval training, all vitally important to complement your speed work AND to offer varied training with your running colleagues. 


The C2 5K is a new group starting up and is strictly for beginners or those returning to running after a long absence. It is led by Amanda, Caroline and Danny and is where many of our new members start. Please PASS THE WORD to anyone you think might be interested.

New members are always welcome and can try out a session or two to see if it suits them.
