Club Training Sessions

Everyone is invited to run at their own level — you will be gently encouraged, but never pushed. We don’t leave people on their own and someone will always stay with you if you happen to be at the back no matter what session you choose to participate in.

To start with just come along with what you’ve got — trainers, shorts/tracksuit, leggings etc. Lots of layers in colder weather is good as well as gloves and a hat. As you progress you should look at investing in a pair of proper running shoes and get fitted at a specialist running shop
