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).
