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.

H = effort run at 5k pace for those concentrating on 10k; 10k pace for those concentrating on marathon.

R = recovery run at very steady pace, breathing easily and able to talk.  All recovery should be active, except when doing out and back session.

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

Everyone will be made aware of the route planned.  During session the group will normally run around 6 miles and sessions normally last around 60-70mins.

Groups meet at the clubhouse at Stantonbury Stadium to start the session at 7pm prompt unless specified above.
