Monday Social Run
The Monday social run is suitable for all abilities, you just need to be confident you can manage the distance to participate in this run, regardless of pace! It is a great opportunity to get to know other members, and has a more relaxed feel than some of the more training-focused sessions.
We meet at the Clubhouse at Trinity Fields (on the corner of Burntwood Lane and Beechcroft Road, see map here: https://goo.gl/maps/PTqH3ru5Twv) for a 7:15pm start. There are toilets and changing space in the Clubhouse, and everything is securely locked when we set off so you can leave bikes and belongings there while you're running.
This session runs every normal Monday, BUT NOT Bank Holiday Mondays.
Please do introduce yourself at the start if you are new. We always have two session leaders and two novice leaders, so there is always someone on hand to answer any questions you may have! There is also a session briefing before we set off, confirming which route we are doing and who our pacers will be.
We split into 2 groups:
Within the Continuous group there are several pacers in hi-viz Chaser tops who know the route. It will be pointed out at the beginning what pace they are running, which usually ranges from 6.30-8:45 minute miling. Simply stick with the pacer that suits you on the night.
This is a great opportunity to move up from the Novice group. It is continuous, but runs between 8:45-9 minute miling.
The approximate pace for this group is 9-10 minute-miling, but there will always be a leader at the front and a sweeper at the back, so no-one ever gets left behind! If you can run the distance you can do this session!
PLEASE OBSERVE THE THE HIGHWAY CODE AND USE COMMON SENSE AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND ANY ROAD CROSSINGS. In addition, we DO NOT have right of way - please saty to the left wherever possible and make space for cyclists/other pedestrians.
There are currently 3 routes that we alternate between:
