At 6:30pm for our other Groups who run between 5 and 7 miles on road.

On Wednesday nigths at 6:15pm we meet a various locations for fell/trail runs.

On Thursday night we are currently meeting at Deeside athletic stadium at 7.00pm.

Do you cater for all ages and standards?

The membership age profile ranges from 20 to 65 year olds both male and female. New members should be able to run or jog at least 3 or 4 miles even if this at a slow pace. On a tuesday we usually split into 2 to groups one going a little slower than the other.
The thursday night session at the track is a coached session and is a good one if you are short on confidence as you do not have to fear being left behind or falling short of breath and being stuck. The nature of the session is to build your confidence and build up your speed. There will be faster runners but there will also be slower runners, there is a very social atmosphere and it is not taken too seriously if you are struggling to perform.
When you come along for your first club run we want you to enjoy it enough to want to join us regularly.

How fast and how far do you run?

On tuesday night the traing groups run from 4 to 10 miles but there are always opportunities along the way to take short cuts if you have a problem and need to cut your run short. The pace of our quicker group ranges from 5 to 8 minute miles whilst our slower group ranges from 8 to 11 mins/ mile.

Will I get left behind or lost?

No definitely not! Because of the ranges of the pace within the training groups the runners can become a little strung out as we run and so we stop to re-group regularly with the faster members running back. Special attention is paid to new members as we are aware that they will probably do know the area well.
