Who the Sessions are for :

These sessions are targeted at helping endurance runners  ( 5k/10k/half & full marathon) and triathletes improve their  performance and achieve their goals.
We have three ability groups each session with a wide variety of runners, but track is not recommended for absolute beginners.
You should have a good stamina and endurance base before you introduce speed work to your training programme. This could be through attending the club’s group runs and  building up your own weekly mileage .
If you are new to track sessions or are returning after injury please speak to the coach before the sessions starts.

Sessions Format
Please make sure you have warmed up prior to the start of the session (preferably with four laps of the track). The session will start with warm up drills. The coach will explain the session and what you are trying to achieve. The rep’s total volume is usually between 5k and 8k and are usually done in less than an hour and followed by a warm down. Sessions vary every week and include interval sessions at paces which can vary from 3-5k pace. The aim of the session is to improve your speed and prepare you for races.

Due to the popularity of these sessions it is not possible to give times for each distance and pace but pace charts are available and we encourage you to monitor your own sessions with help from your coach.
