Intermediate/Mixed group

The Intermediate/mixed ability group is suitable for those runners that find themselves towards the front of the Improvers group, and for those that don’t want to train on the track with the Endurance group.

Sessions are aimed at runners that can cover 10k in around 36-45 minutes, although we regroup regularly so nobody is left behind or gets too far ahead.  Typical interval sessions include around 24-28 minutes of running at ‘pace’ (typically around 5k pace), with the rest of the time made up of warm-up, warm-down and recovery running.  All training sessions start at the clubhouse at 7pm and normally finish around 8.15pm with the group running around 8 miles.

When groups are large then athletes need to run on left-hand side of redway, letting faster athletes overtake on the right.
