Weekly Run Sessions
Weekly Run Sessions
Every Wednesday evening from 6.00-7.00pm
Our run schedule is three weeks at Jarman Park running track, then one week on the road or trail route, on a rolling 4-week cycle.
The running track sessions are structured, with a high intensity session building power and speed, as well as building endurance. These will be coached and will cost £2.50 per session.

Once every 4 weeks there will be an Activator-led group run starting at Everyone Active Hemel. These runs will tend to be longer distance. Depending on numbers, we may have multiple different pace groups. These sessions are not charged.
See below for more information on equipment that you might need.
Saturday is PARK RUN day. Park Runs will be at 9am in your local park (for us that's Gadebridge Park). We encourange members to attend this run with your club mates. When you've finsihed, hang around a bit and talk to people about the club. Attending Park Runs will support the movement and will raise the profile of the club. (click here for your local park run)
What you will need for training:
When you attend the run sessions on a wednesday it is recomended that you bring a water bottle and wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions. Better to strip down than start cold!
You can wear any kind of running shoes at the track, from fast road trainers to trail trainers. If you wear spikes (track or XC spikes) the spikes should be no longer than 6mm.
When you attend the long run once a month, it is again advisible to bring a water bottle and suitable clothing, also high visible clothing as part of this may be on or close to roads. In the winter months reflective clothing and/or lights (head torch) will be recommended. We will communicate before each long run the distance and terrain so you can come prepared.
With all run sessions if you can arrive 5 minutes before we start so we can start on time and all go through the full warm up drills.
Options for running with hyrdration. From a simple hand held bottle, to a waist pack and for the longer runs a hydration vest.
