Training Sessions

We meet every Tuesday at Beeslack High School in the main car park at 7pm for varied sessions geared towards distance running and covering cross-country, roads, marathon and hills.

We also have a hill session on a Thursday at 7pm, with the venue dependant on the season and current conditions. This is usually arranged on a week by week basis so if you would like to come along it’s best to give Bill Bennet a ring on 01968 674500.

Our sessions suit all level of runner, ideally you need to be able to run the warm up which is usually 2 miles at chatting pace without stopping.  The actual session has runners split into their ability levels and there is no pressure, the sessions are timed so you can hear how you are developing over certain distances.

We have recently published our planned Tuesday training sessions so you have an idea what to expect each week. Please see our Training Calendar page for more details, or the summary over on the right of this page.

At the weekends – depending on competitions – we arrange longer runs over country or hill; this is agreed and arranged by the runners themselves.

See our Find Us page for some push pins showing the above locations.

    I was looking to join a running club to try and improve my speed and distance. I wondered if it would be ok to give a training session a try

      Hi Dawn

      I’m so sorry for the late reply, I must have missed the email telling me that you had commented 🙁

      You are more than welcome to come and join us for a session (or two) any Tuesday that you like. We meet at Beeslack at 7pm and then run up to Cornbank for the session. On the last Tuesday of the month we have a 2 mile handicap so maybe best not to make that your first night.

      Hope to see you soon,
      Susie 🙂

    I have just moved to this area from Cape Town in South Africa and am keen to find a group that I would be comfortable running with.
