Are You Interested in Joining?

You are very welcome to run with us for two or three weeks before making a commitment to join. We sincerely hope that you will like us enough to want to become a member of the finest athletic club in the South West (probably). Runners of all abilities are welcome at our training nights. The sessions are structured to cater for all standards, including new runners. Please check our calendar for details of our current activities. Visiting runners are very welcome.

Our Training Sessions

Monday Night

(The Gentle One)
7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
A fairly easy paced road run of around 5 or 6 miles. Everyone runs as a group on Mondays, at a pace determined by the slowest runners. Faster runners will double back at various checkpoints.

Tuesday Night

(The Beach)
7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
A two-mile jog to the beach provides a perfect warm-up. We then run a session of repetitions over various distances, with recovery intervals between them. If you are really looking to improve your times, this session will do it for you. The training is structured so that whatever your standard you will not be left behind. Work as hard as you like or take it easy - it's up to you.

Thursday Night

(The Road Run)
7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
We use a variety of different circuits to provide a steady road run of around 8 or 9 miles. We usually split into three different groups according to standard, which allows everyone to do the course at a suitable pace. All of the routes have points where the course may be shortened if you do not feel like completing the whole distance. Our regular circuits include Fartleking, Five Hills Puff, Four Bridges Grunt, Old Slog and Safeway Way.

Saturday Morning Cycling

(On Yer Bike)
The club cyclists are usually out on Saturday mornings for a road ride of around 50 or 60 miles. Normal start time is 8:15am, with a mid-route "Big Breakfast" stop. Meeting places and times may vary, so please check if you are thinking about coming along. If you are thinking about a triathlon or just want a bit of cross training, these sessions will help. They're also not bad if you just like a good breakfast.

The Long Sunday Run

(Over the Hills and Far Away)
If you have a marathon in mind (or even a half), this is the one that you must not miss. The long, slow run provides the platform for all of your training. On most Sunday mornings, there are one or two groups of runners out, with options of between 12 and 21 miles. Most of the runs are off-road and are taken at an easy pace. (With the hills we find to run up there is really only one pace available). Start times are normally between 8am and 9am.
