Training Sessions

 

We meet on Monday and Wednesday nights with training sessions starting at 6.00pm, so we are the ideal choice for runners working in or near central Newcastle.  On Mondays we have a long run in groups, whereas Wednesdays are more structured training sessions.

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.  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! A typical run can be between 6.5 and 8 miles, but shorter versions of each route are available.  Click here for some of our favourite routes.

Wednesday nights are for more structured training planned by one of the experienced club leaders.  Sessions are varied with short intervals to help us get faster, hills to help us get stronger, longer intervals to build speed endurance and even the odd boot-camp.
