We regularly hold three sessions through the week which cater for ALL abilities.
Beginners & Improvers Group
To start the week off, our Monday night runs focus on a gentle pace, ideal if you are just starting out or you want to get back to running. The distance is typically around 3 to 5 miles. There is a soothing 10-13 minute/mile group for the slightly apprehensive beginners. In addition, there is a smaller group who run a little quicker and even a smaller group who run even quicker. We aim to ensure everyone is happy with the distance and pace and we always reevaluate how things go once we start off. Please meet in the Morrison’s car park near the Cash Machines and Café/corner by the cycle path. 6.25pm for a 6.30pm start.
Main Club Run
Our main club night. We meet at Tewkesbury Rugby Club at 6.45pm. There is a variety of paces and we always run back at specific points along the route to make sure no one is left behind. Distances are typically between 5 and 10 miles with stops along the way to regroup. Although the evenings are dark, Tewkesbury does offer a street lighting route that we safely navigate. In general, the groups leave from 18:50 hrs with the easier pace group (+/- 10 minute mile pace) starting first until the quicker group leaving at 7pm.
Speed & Technique
The end of the week finishes with our beginners and improvers ‘speed & technique’ session. Focusing on efficiency, technique and looking good. Do as much or as little as you feel. Proven sessions to help you improve. We start with a relaxed warm-up, then 30 minutes focused training, the warm-down, ending with some stretching. This session is under the watchful eyes of experienced athletes who should be able to give you some tuning. We meet at the Mitton shopping arcade/outside Woody's at 6.30pm to get going for 6.35pm. Please come and try the Friday sesh at least once - if you're unsure phone 07811 389994 and we can walk you through it.
