This is Mark’s first time doing a solo session so be nice! Come and show your support for him – he is a great runner and committed club member!

There are some biting creatures hiding at Castle Manor – as it gets further into summer bug spray would be a good idea!!

When signing up, you will be asked for your 5k and 10k times (don’t worry if you don’t have both).
Please note that if you have not signed up, you will not be able to run this event.
Start times will be staggered according to your predicted finish time, so that all runners, how ever fast or slow, have the chance to win.
Sign up today, there is a prize for the winner!🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏆…/handicap-5-mile-time-tr…/

Things to consider when we are out further a field:
Bring water if it is hot! There is less chance of getting hold of some in the middle of a field than in town!
Trail shoes may be useful especially if it has been raining – that happens now and again in England! 🙄😫 But they are not essential – it’s up to you
Please try to wear bright/hi-viz clothing
Pacers/leaders please carry a mobile phone in case of any problems
Pacers/leaders please try to stick to pace but all runners need to be aware this can be more variable off road!

Any questions please let us know. This isn’t hard-core off roading so if you haven’t done a summer route before please don’t worry – come along and enjoy Thursday runs!


Is 6:30 or 7pm too late for you to run?

You may also want to consider the small but perfectly formed 6:00pm group led by Shirley Fowler – another of our qualified coaches. They meet at the Leisure Centre each week.

The 6pm group follow this plan each session:
run between 8-11 min miles, Tuesday we do 3-4 miles ( and incorporate training in the run e.g hills or speed) Thursday is a little faster run with less stops 5-7 miles and off road in summer. All abilities are welcome to come give us a go.
