Road Running

Training

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.

The Club actively encourages participation in various road races throughout the year for the Club Championships, culminating in October for the Basingstoke Half Marathon.

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.
