Club Run Leader Sessions

Our Club Run Leader Sessions are designed for all ages and abilities and aim to help improve your running technique, speed and fitness. Our sessions take place twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday evening, meeting at the rear of the Leisure Centre, or at the iCon building during the summer months.

 

The sessions vary from Hill Repeats, Intervals, Paced Groups and more and are organised by our qualified run leaders, with a pre-planned route around Daventry and approximately 4 - 6 miles.

 

Also, every Tuesday, Lizette is providing a coached training session, working with a different paced group each week with a more focused session. Lizette's sessions throughout December are as follows:

•  3rd Dec – Coaching Session with Group 6

•  10th Dec – Coaching Session with Group 5

•  17th Dec – Coaching Session with Group 4

December 2019

Some of our Club Run Leader Sessions involve running in a group of similar paced runners. Groups are numbered from 1 to 6 with Group 1 being 7 minute miles or faster, through to Group 6 being 11 minute miles or above. If you are new to the club and are unsure about which group to go with, please speak to the run leader before the session. If at any time you find yourself struggling to keep up with your group during the run, you are welcome to drop back to the next group, however we must insist that you do not run faster than your specified pace, as we don't want groups getting separated or any runner's getting left on their own.

Below is a brief overview of the sessions for the next month. Exact details, including a map of the route will be posted on our Facebook group prior to each session.
