Training

Training Programme – June 2024

The club meets three times a week, in all weathers, unless it coincides with a club race or event. See the latest training programme for details.

Our training includes beginners’ runs, speedwork, club runs and long runs.

Club Runs

On Tuesday we have our club run, with 9 groups running at a wide range of paces, each with its own group leader. Check Running Groups so you can be allocated the most suitable group for your ability. Our leaders/coaches will lead the running group, ensuring that all members of the group are running comfortably and the group is kept together – our runners never run alone.

During the summer months, our club runs take place along quiet country lanes and off-road trails and footpaths. In the winter, the evening sessions centre on the well-lit streets of Royston, returning to the surrounding countryside at weekends.

Speedwork

Every week we have a coach-led speedwork training lesson, This is usually on a Thursday in Royston, but about once a month this session moves to the track in Stevenage on a Friday. See Coached Sessions for more details.

Long Runs

Our members usually run together on Saturday or Sunday mornings. Although these are not formal club events, details are shared with members via our Facebook page and in our weekly email.
