Phil will lead a group of up to six people, departing from outside the Y Club at 6:00pm. The total distance is around 8 miles.

You must sign up in advance; numbers will be strictly limited to six people and you will not be allowed to run with the group if you have not registered in advance.

Note: the Y Club and Castlefield Hotel are currently closed. There are no changing or toilet facilities; you need to turn up "ready to run".

Session format

We meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. After a quick warm up, the Captains will gather the group together for club notices, after which we’ll split into sub-groups before we head off on the run.

Each group will run at a different pace and will be led by a club member, so there should always be a pace group suited to you. The number of groups is flexible depending on the number of runners down on any particular night and the availability of people to lead a group, however we will try and provide the following pace groups:

  • Group 1: 7.00 min / mile (4.20 min / km) +/- 30 secs
  • Group 2: 7.30 min / mile (4.40 min / km) +/- 30 secs
  • Group 3: 8.30 min / mile (5.20 min / km) +/- 30 secs
  • Group 4: 9.30 min / mile (5.50 min / km) +/- 30 secs

If you’re not sure which group to go in on your first visit, we'd advise starting off in Group 4 and try to work your way up to the next one!

Our routes are generally 6 - 8 miles (10 - 13km) but if you don't fancy running that far, we'll always offer a shorter alternative route of approximately 3 miles (5km).
