Training during COVID
During covid restrictions online sign-up in advance is required!
If you can no longer make a session you signed up for, edit your sign up using the link in your confirmation email and deselect the group you had entered before resubmitting your entry. This way your space can go to someone else – if you want to grab one of these spaces, you’ll need to be on the ball and check the availability regularly
All sessions have been fully risk-assessed and will be run-lead/coached and will make use of safe social distancing. In order to to reduce hanging around time and potential transmission of COVID-19 a number of measures are in place:
- Please can all members taking part arrive already warmed up
- Sessions start promptly at 6:30pm – leaving the meeting location for the training location
- There will be no group cool down or stretch off at the end
- All members must run at their own risk – observe current social distancing guidelines at all times
- All the groups will meet in different locations – check yours for this week!
The sign up opens ~48 h before the training session.

Pacing Guidelines for Monday Night Training Groups
Please note that these are guidelines – depending on the changing ability of current runners and the ability of new members this may change and will be reviewed .
It’s worth spending a bit of time considering whether you’re running with the most appropriate group on a Monday evening. If you are consistently near the front or back of your group, it may be time to consider trying a new one.
We appreciate that there are many different reasons why people run – some people enjoy the social aspect of running, whereas others want to train hard to improve their speed. We’re hoping that everyone will be making progress, but there is no shame in dropping down a group.
