For those runners wanting a friendly run in company with others of a similar standard we offer training runs starting on Mondays and Thursdays. It is also an ideal starting point to join the club. There is also a Saturday morning group for those wanting more in distance and can be used in preparation for marathon training.
Most of our routes are about 10k but sometimes up to 7+ miles. We vary the routes, in summer we get out along the River Ouse and use the cycle tracks to keep away from roads. In winter we generally keep to the lit roads/paths but will be introducing “headtorch runs” where short sections may be on unlit pavements/cycle track. About once a month there is a session which includes hill reps.
There are usually three groups of different paces. Within each group there are runners of varied abilities so we have designated stopping places about every mile for regrouping, with “runbacks” for the faster ones. No-one gets left behind.
The leaders have the Leader in Running Fitness qualification issued by UK Athletics. They are familiar with the routes which have all been scheduled beforehand.
