The main weekly session is on Tuesday evenings from 6.30 to 7.30.
In the summer months we train on the playing fields at Castle Manor Academy (Eastern Ave, Haverhill CB9 9JE). Over the winter months we meet at Haverhill Leisure Centre (Ehringshausen Way, Haverhill CB9 0ER) or at the Samuel Ward Academy (Chalkstone Way, Haverhill CB9 0LD), where we start earlier at 6.15.
The training schedule, giving the type of session and location, is prepared in advance and is shown below for January to June 2019.
Every fourth week we focus on agility and strength and conditioning. The other weeks of each month include speed work (100/200m or 400m reps), hill reps and 1k reps. Each term we also do some relay training.
The team monitors improvement, offers advice according to needs and preferences and is always ready to discuss any issues with members of the group or parents. We aim to be discreet and only publish race results on this website. Our aim is to be inclusive and celebrate everyone’s progress and achievements.
Every Saturday morning the group has the opportunity to race.
For three Saturdays a month we run our own 3k race at Motts Field (CB9 0LP) starting at 9am. Every fourth Saturday the group can take part in the 5k Haverhill Parkrun at Puddle Brook Playing Fields (Greenfields Way, CB9 8NJ) at 9am. Note that the 5k distance requires parental permission.
