Our road runners generally meet on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings. A full description of each group is on the relevant training page, however as a rough guide the Marathon group and Endurance groups are aimed at those that are capable of running 7-9 miles and would run 10km races 42mins or quicker. The Intermediates group run around 7 miles on a Tuesday and is aimed at those runners who would run 10k in 42-50mins. The Improvers group tends to run shorter distances and at a steadier pace.
The Improvers group host social runs on a Thursday night, to which any runner is welcome.
