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.

As we start training again, the meeting places and times may vary and the club road runners facebook page should be checked, or email/text on contact details below (polite hours only please!)

During efforts and recovery everyone should run at a pace which suits them.  There will always be regrouping during the recovery.
