Training Routes

 

A typical Monday night run lasts for about an hour.  To enable us to cater for a wide range of abilities, we operate a pack system, ie slow, medium and fast packs.

Wednesday evening training is normally an interval session led by one of our experienced leaders, though some members choose simply to go for a run.  This often includes a bit of hill work!

We have a number of well-trodden routes, starting and finishing at Sport Central and taking in areas all over the City.  The summer months allow us to take advantage of our beautiful local parks such as Jesmond Dene, but we stick to well-lit streets in the winter!

Whilst we are always open to new suggestions for training routes, here is a selection of our favourite Monday night runs:
