Information

New Members

Your main contact is our Liaison Officer: Grant Mcgowan, Tel. Number:- 07768 789508 email: grant.mcgowan@aol.co.uk. Grant will be able to advise you when to come down and as to what the club is doing at the present moment in time. The club coaches will greet you and chat with you and advise you on which training groups will best suit you. Its important to us that new people are made to feel welcome and enjoy their first run.

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.

Fees

Free trial period. The membership is £30 a year, plus an additional one off fee for a newly designed high quality bespoke 'Deestriders Running Club' vest costing £24. Please indicate vest size preference when sending in completed application form and membership fee to Grant McGowan.

How Fast and How Far

On Tuesday night the training 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.
