The Seniors section is for runners from 18 years old and we are a mixed abilities group. We have runners of varying levels of experience and pace so there is always someone to run with. We suggest that prior to joining you feel confident in your ability to run for half an hour, the speed at which you run or the time it takes you does not matter, you don’t have to be fast to run with us. We will help you to improve your distance, time and fitness. All sessions are led by England Athletics qualified Leaders in Running Fitness.
We meet at Heathcoat Factory, Westexe, Tiverton on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6.05pm to leave at 6.15pm. There are parking and toilet facilities available at the factory.
Tuesday training sessions focus on speed endurance and hill work as well as improving running technique and skills. During the summer months we train on a grass track and during the winter we train on specific lit road routes depending on the session.
Thursday training sessions involve runs of varying distances, usually between 4, 6 or 8 miles. During the summer we try to explore more scenic routes including a regular off-road run and during the winter these runs will be on lit road routes.
The Thursday sessions also include an improvers/beginners group specifically designed for anyone looking to start running in a safe and supportive environment. If you would like to improve your running by going further or faster and would like to run as part of a sociable, friendly group then come along and join us for a free trial session.
New members are always very welcome to join us for any of our sessions, just come along at the times above or if you would prefer to have a chat with one of our Run Leaders first please get in touch with Kat, Tamsin or Terry contact details here.
