We train on both Tuesdays and Thursdays most weeks. Tuesdays is a club run and is a run over the nearby hills and moors close to Otley and Ilkley, although there are also usually a group or two running the more local trails (and roads in winter) closer to Adel. Thursdays are a hills or “speed” session somewhere in North Leeds, such as a sharp hill reps session in Roundhay Park. A list of these current sessions are below.
We welcome all and anyone to join us, whether they are interested in joining the club, or just want some company when training. We usually enjoy a pint and a chat afterwards. Our sessions are announced a day or two before via a group email and on our Facebook page.
We usually meet at 7.15pm, with those going to hills leaving about 7.20pm and those running more locally starting at 7.30. If you are interested in coming along just send an email to one of the following and we will let you know what we are doing and when:
- Greg Weatherhead: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Dom Nurse: email@example.com
When running with us on the fells you will need some basic equipment, especially during the darker months when we are running off road in more exposed areas without any artificial light. Typically you might need a head torch, hat and gloves and a light waterproof jacket.
Thursday sessions (updated 17/8/16)
Our Thursday runs are a hills or reps session designed to improve your running speed and strength. These are not run by a coach, but are designed to be a group session open to all, whatever your speed, to meet and do the hard km together!
Usually we meet at 7.20 to start doing a warm-up at 7.30. The sessions usually last about an hour in total.
