Improvers group

The Improvers Group is suitable for all people progressing from jogging to becoming runners. We offer a varied programme of time, distance and hill effort sessions which generally results in about 6 miles being covered in the 60-70minutes. We will always regroup so no-one is left behind so if you are working towards a specific goal or just want a sociable group to run with whilst improving stamina and/or speed then come along and give us a go.

Whilst things get back to normal there may be changes to this in view of any Joint Sessions, Handicap Runs or events (EMGP), please check the roadrunners Facebook page for updates.

We are not continuing with regular scheduled Thursday sessions, but the Intermediate Groups Campbell Park sessions are suitable for all.  We may have occasional Thursday off road runs, so follow the Facebook page, or ask to be put on the Whatsapp Group for those update/announcements
