WHAT WE DO

The session starts with a group warm up. We then group up to participate in a variety of interval sessions. These sessions are organised by fully qualified coaches. We usually offer two sessions an evening, one on the track and one grass session. These are aimed mainly for endurance runners - middle-distance through to marathon. See below for our Tuesday training plan.
