XC training sessions will take place at Castle Manor on Saturday mornings, from 9-10am. The sessions will be similar to Tuesday training but using the more undulating parts of the field. Suitable for juniors and seniors.
Why do XC training? If you don’t normally run off-road or do cross-country, it really is a different kettle of fish to road running. Just the unevenness of the terrain and the short inclines take it out of you, and at first it can be quite hard. Which is why we’ve introduced these regular training sessions to help you all prepare for the cross-country series, parkruns, or just plodding around the fields on a Sunday morning. It even benefits those doing marathon training, as it makes your core stronger, builds stability in your joints and enables you to get some extra miles under your belt without the additional impact of running on tarmac. Just don’t leave it too late, start early and build yourself up slowly.
They will run between the first and the last XC race of the winter league, every week apart from when a race is taking place.
