Our Running Groups

An Advanced Beginners’ Group

This is for people who have ‘graduated’ from a Couch-to-5K group, people who may be returning to running after a break or people who have some experience but may feel uncomfortable for whatever reason joining a “proper” running group. It is still a confidence-building beginners’ group and we aim to cover a distance of 3.5 to 4.5 miles at a very gentle pace.

It takes place every Tuesday evening from 6-7pm and we meet outside Enderby Leisure Centre during the winter and outside Huncote Leisure Centre (Pavilion) during the summer.

Please contact Tony Lay on 07455 012314, Wendy Thompson on 07540 345337 or Ben Benson on 07860 277104 for further information this group, or simply turn up on a Tuesday and say Hi!

 
We are planning to launch another 9-week Couch to 5K Programme in September 2018 for absolute beginners with no running experience at all. 
 

Intermediate & Advanced Running Groups

We run a variety of groups in both our Tuesday and Thursday sessions that cater for a wide range of runners, from those that are able to run for an hour with little or no stopping to those more competitive looking to make the prize places in races.

The various groups will cover distances starting at approx. 5-6 miles and going up to maybe 10 miles in one session. In all groups there is still a focus on having fun!

You are welcome to run with us for a couple of weeks to make sure you enjoy running with us, just come down and say Hi! After a couple of weeks though we would request that you become a member. Feel free to contact any of the Club’s Officers if you would like more details before you come to join us.

 
Please see the Training Information page for more details.
 

Track Sessions

We book track sessions at Ratcliffe College in blocks of weeks at a time and these sessions are suitable for all members of the club at all ability levels (at the end of the day you are simply running in circles so there is no such thing as being left behind!).

Our Coaches & Run Leaders

All of our club sessions are led by one of our club coaches or run leaders, who have all received the relevant training and qualifications issued by England Athletics.
