Monday nights just get better!
Our Monday evening runs are getting bigger each week and we have listened to your feedback, so the good news is we are adding an extra run and making a couple of small other changes from the Monday night run on 22 September – all these runs will still start at 19.00 at the David Lloyd barriers.
NEW Social run
We are introducing a new ‘social’ run with the aim... of the group to be fun and chatty. The group will be doing the winter route, but in reverse, the route is about 4 miles and will be with loop backs as well to keep everyone together - so many runners will get more than the 4 miles.
This run will be managed by Jonathan Clements for the club and along with him, there will be a ‘crack!’ team who will take it in turns to lead the runs, this will include; Julie Martin, Michelle George-Barnes, Marcus Knee, Martin Sheppard, Nick Costin, Simon Baker and Veritie Yates.
The pace of this group will be faster than step up but not unattainable so for anyone doing about 10 minute miles and quicker.
As mentioned the group will have a different run lead/help each week but will need a tail runner each week - if you can volunteer for this role please let Jonathan know.
Step Up group
This will stay the same and be led by Leigh and Debbie, they do about a 2.7 mile route with loop backs, with a tail runner and suitable for runners who do over 10.5 minute mile pace.
The club run continues - each week this group will do the same route and all runners will start out on the route at the same time with no loop backs or pacing groups.
This group will have a tail runner as well, but runners will need to know the route. If you can volunteer to tail run please let us know.
This group at times may do other things such as pacing groups which will be advertised accordingly.
Please note - with the lighting changing week by week we will be sticking to these same routes from the 22 September throughout the winter so its a good opportunity over the next few weeks to learn these with what light we do have left...
It is also an opportunity to start practicing with a head torch or to get one!
