SENIORS TRAINING

Club members meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays to run at differing paces and distances of 5 to 6-ish miles or 6 to 8-ish miles. During lighter evenings we participate in off-road runs and use road routes in the winter months. For information on routes, see the calendar below.

On Wednesdays we have a social run which is off road. Intervals take place one Tuesday of every month and there is a 5-10k improvers’ programme on Thursdays to improve pace.

On Tuesdays & Thursdays, we meet at 7pm in Aireville Park at the picnic bench by the main path near the parkrun finish point (see map below). The monthly interval training session starts at 7pm from outside the entrance to Craven Leisure centre.

The Wednesday ‘pub runs’ start at a different location each week at 6:45pm. Please ask for the start place if you’d like to join us.
