18:30 - The warm-up run
2.5 miles, starting at the club, around the streets of Wyken and back to the club. Originally conceived for beginners, this is a very popular and social run with many of the seasoned veterans, giving a warm-up and a few extra miles before the main run.
19:00 - The main run(s)
We split up into different groups based on ability, interest and objectives.
- There’s usually a group that will do an 8- or 9-mile run at a fast pace - anybody is welcome to join in as long as they feel up to it.
- Others choose to participate in our varied training programmes based around hill repetitions, mile repetitions and fartleks.
- Others run with a group or two that will do a steady 5 or 6 miles
- Usually, another group will do maybe 2 or 3 miles at a very comfortable pace.
In general, there is something for just about everybody. Nobody’s obliged to run with the same group week after week - you can mix and match your evenings with us.
