Covid-19 update:

  • Members should be aware that it is their personal responsibility not to turn up to the activity if displaying any of the Covid-19 symptoms as outlined in the UK Government guidance.
  • Club runs are from the clubhouse, except on the first Wednesday of the month when they may start from different venues which will be communicated to members.
  • Monday and Tuesday coached sessions – to ensure safe coach/athlete ratios, it will also be necessary to keep signing up for these.

Club training sessions

We hold a variety of training sessions throughout the year.

Our UK Athletics qualified coaches are insured to lead sessions in endurance events. We also have coaches qualified to run speed training sessions and beginners courses.

If you think you’d like to have a go then we welcome newcomers at any of our training sessions where you should make yourself known to a committee member.

Training runs

We meet at our Club House on Wednesdays and Sundays for a variety of training runs in the surrounding countryside (summer) or around the town (winter).

If you new to running then we do also offer our Get Me Started course (formerly “Absolute Beginners”), which is specifically designed to take you through to running a 5km (3 mile) distance over a 9 week period. It will also introduce you to the club, its club sessions and your fellow runners. At the successful end of your course, you will be ready to join our established running groups to continue your development.

Next course will be in April 2020.
