Each week incorporates a mix of basic skills sessions and jog-walk-run sessions to enable you to build confidence, distance and pace.

Group C/D

Builds speed and endurance for those wishing to participate in events up to 10 mile or half marathons. sessions may include hills, speed work or longer runs on nearby roads or paths.

Group E

Sessions focusing on speed, endurance and strength at a faster pace than the previous group. A perfect training opportunity for those looking to improve their times in races. Sessions may include hills, fartlek (speed play), intervals and tempo runs.

Groups F & G

Training at a higher intensity/pace. Sessions will focus on improving technique as well as speed, strength and endurance in preparation for upcoming races.

Pacing Guidelines for Monday Night Training Sessions (Updated May 2015)

New Training Paces

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 by the Group

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.
