Training takes place each Tuesday and Thursday evening starting at 6:30pm prompt at Down Grange Sports Ground. All sessions are supervised by our team of coaches and are for runners of all standards, not just the elite!
Experienced Club members will ensure that newcomers are warmly welcomed.
Sunday is usually a long run of at least 10 miles and meeting points are published in advance on social media with groups of differing abilities.
The Club organises a Handicap series, usually held on the first Thursday of each month around a marked route of approx 4.8 miles. This event creates a great sense of friendly rivalry within the Club; it is also very useful for monitoring how the summer training is progressing. A trophy is presented to the overall winner at the A.G.M.
We also take part (and have had some success) in the many road relay events which form part of the road racing calendar.
A large number of Road Runners also compete further afield, with many global marathons among the races our members are proud to show off their medals from! The London Marathon is an obvious target for many members and our training groups organise informal training runs throughout the Winter with a view to preparing for this (and other) Spring marathons.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the road running secretary via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The training schedule is now included in the Club Calendar. Instructions on adding the Calendar to your smartphone can be found here
Note: Michael Hickey cannot lead this session due to work commitments, so you may want to join the main group for their 900/300m reps. If you want to do the 1200s, the route is: Woodroffe Drive, High Drive, Brackley Way (600m recovery)
You have 22 minutes to get as close to the M3 Bridge as you can, before you must reverse your tracks. Must be back at Down Grange by 44 minutes. The route is DG Car Park, then down Pack Lane, Kempshott Lane (to the top and thru the subway as if going to Sainsburys), then down Winchester Road (footpath), Woodbury Road, then up Beggarwood Lane to the M3 Bridge (where we finish our hill reps). Must touch the bridge by 22 minutes to qualify for the M3 Bridge Challenge! Most mortals will not reach this point, and instead must rely on their watch to turn around and reverse their tracks at 22 minutes precisely.
