Training sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings at 7pm sharp.

The sessions rotate on a four weekly basis and they also change from summer to winter.

Tuesday runs are Efforts sessions in which two of them are hills and the other two are flat sprints -

A detailed explanantion of each of the training session is here (Training sessions explained)

Thursday runs are a longer tempo run, ranging from 6.5 miles to 8 miles.
Sunday runs are decided during the week and depend upon races occurring.

We can also do shorter run on Thursdays of approx 5-6 miles if needed, please ask one of the members about this at the training session you are coming to.
