Training


We meet at the entrance to the Ridgeway playing fields in Southborough (just off of Yew Tree Road) for all of our group sessions. If you are new to the group, please first register your details with us on the RunTogether groups website and ensure to arrive 10 minutes early in order to register and ask any questions that you may have. Each session lasts for an hour.

Monday night speedwork sessions: The sessions are different each week but generally consist of a warm-up jog, a main 25-30 minute session of fast running intervals with active walk/jog recovery in-between, followed by a cool down jog and some stretching. In the Spring & Summer, training sessions takes place on the playing fields and over the Autumn & Winter, sessions involve running on the pavements around quiet local roads (a hi-visability & reflective vest is compulsory).

We have runners of all abilities who take part and the sessions are adapted according to the runners who are there on the evening. There is no pressure on you to keep up with others who are faster or slow down for those who are slower. The variety of sessions include, Reps, Fartlek (speed play), hills, Parlauf (continuous relays) and tempo runs.

Sunday morning beginner sessions: Suitable for those who have little or no experience of running or those who are returning from injury/illness and would like to gradually improve their fitness over time. We run an 8 week beginner plan which takes people from walking and jogging intervals and gradually builds them up to jogging continuously for 30 minutes by the end of the plan. Please contact us for details of when the next 8 week beginner group is due to commence as they run throughout the year.
