Heather will lead a group of up to twelve people, departing from the car park of the Jackson's Boat pub at 6:00pm. The total distance is around 5 miles.

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

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).
