“Improve your speed” training sessions for winter

Runner setting sports watch

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 from the clubhouse will resume from Wed 4th August. From 1st October some runs on the first Wednesday of the month may start from different venues, as during Covid-19. It will be necessary for members to sign up for these on Facebook.
  • Monday and Tuesday coached sessions – to ensure safe coach/athlete ratios, it will also be necessary to keep signing up for these.

Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm during the winter months – see below for venues.

Why do it?

Hill and flat speed training should help develop leg strength, so you can generate more force per stride and don’t tire so easily, it should improve your running technique and help you to develop a quick cadence.

The sessions will last up to one hour and start with a flat warm up.

All standards of runner are welcome, though it is recommended that you are currently training at least 3 times per week and have run for at least 3 months in order to benefit from speed training without risking injury.

Additionally for your own safety you should wear something fluorescent, reflective or bright at these sessions.

Don’t worry if you haven’t tried anything like this before, as we are keen to introduce runners to this type of training.

Hill rep sessions

Every Tuesday except 2nd and last in the month.

We meet at 6.30pm at the “Woodbourne”, Weybourne Road junction near All Hallows in Weybourne.

This session will start at 6.40pm for those who run there as a warm up.

Flat speed sessions

Every 2nd and last Tuesday in the month.

We will be doing a flat speed session on the industrial road behind Water Lane Sainsbury’s (meet by Alligator Storage Warehouse, GU9 9NP).

This session will start at 6.40pm for those who run there as a warm up, or 6.30 for those who drive there and need to warm up first.


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.
