Group Run

In accordance with guidance from England Athletics, with the end of the national lockdown restrictions on 2nd December, we can restart our group runs!

We'll kick things off again with the Kings Road route.

Different pace and distance groups will be available depending on numbers of attendees, and in accordance with current COVID-19 guidance from England Athletics, we can now remove the limit on attendees as long as we have enough group leaders available, with each leader able to lead sub-groups of 12.

If you do fancy being a group leader, please don't be shy! However, please do ensure that you are super familiar with our coronavirus group running guidance.

The full route is approximately 7-miles. A shorter alternative 3-mile route will also be available.

Please sign up in advance - with your full name - using the Doodle poll links below:

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).
