We arrange routes and timings based on the below criteria. Use these as a guide to the right group for you, based on your ability or what sort of run you wish to join. We encourage runners to move up and down groups as their fitness allows. Run leaders and coaches will always ensure that runners are not left behind
The Beginners Group runs weekly through a yearly training block and teaching new runners how to warm up and run correctly and avoid injury, introducing different running drills and exercises, ending with proper cool downs. The group gently increases its distance, through 5k until, alongside many other club runners, a measured Beginners 10k event in August. It is open to complete novices and all we ask is that people wear suitable sports clothing and footwear. Don't forget to bring some water!
Our Walk/Jog Group is ideal for people who are returning to running, can run for short periods or those taking it easy after injury. The group could cover between 3.5 and 4.5 miles (about 6.5km) in an hour session depending upon the session planned
Runners that can run for an hour, with a few stops, fit into our Fundamentals Group, and could expect to cover between 4.5 and 5.5 mile (about 8km) in an hour session depending upon the session planned. This is group is for people progressing from the beginner’s group and for those looking to improve their running and build up to an hour running.
Comfortable at covering an hour of constant running? Then get involved with the Foundation Group, and you could expect to cover between 5.5 and 6.5 miles (about 9.5km) in an hour session depending upon the session planned.
We suggest that the Events Group is best suited to experienced runners who would be comfortable covering 6.5 miles+ (about 10.5km+) in an hour session if the planned session requires.
