Training

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic all club training is currently cancelled until further notice. 

However to help keep structure and training ongoing for our members see below a summary of hill and speed sessions to try out.  Aim to put 1 hill and 1 speed session into your weekly plan where possible, ensuring a few days between each session to aid recovery.  We’d advise supplementing the training sessions with 1 or 2 easy runs plus a longer run at the weekend where possible.

Prior to attending the training session you must ensure you have read and understood our risk assessment (ITRC Training Risk Assessment Rev 0)
