It is planned to hold hill sessions at the Sports Centre on those dates. Details to follow.

Each session will also have a number of drills or exercises included to help improve your ABCs (Agility, Balance, Co-ordination) and ultimately your running technique. Sessions will take place on a mix of surfaces (tarmac, gravel and grass).

Joining a Wednesday night session at the athletics track? For some helpful advice on using the track, check out this great guide to track etiquette from Steel City Striders.

With the darker months from September through to March we strongly recommend that you come to training wearing Hi-Visibility clothing and a headtorch. You are responsible for seeing and being seen!
