This week’s training sessions are;
Tuesday 5th August
Race 5 of the Summer Grand Prix Series.
Open to all members and new runners to the club, the Summer GP is a two Mile race through Jesmond Dene, starting and finishing under Lord Armstrong Bridge (just along from Pet’s Corner). The race is handicapped, meaning slower runners set off first, followed by quicker athletes at pre-set intervals, with the aim of everyone finishing around the same time.
All competitors are requested to register at East End Pool between 6:00 – 6:30pm before making their way to Jesmond Dene (one mile away) for a 7:00pm start.
Runners who have competed in an earlier race of the series must re-use the number they’ve previously been allocated while runners competing for the 1st time will be given their own unique race number – to last the remainder of the series.
Of course, the event is reliant on members volunteering to help marshal the course, so if you’d like to volunteer for the event you can contact the organisors here.
Wednesday 6th August
TBH Junior’s. No session due to summer holidays.
Beginner’s session, 6:30pm at East End Pool. This session is for anyone who is completely new to running and who would like to experience the benefits and enjoyment of this leisure activity. It will not involve speed work and will purely be about getting into the sport and experiencing the benefits of doing so with the support of a running club. Runners may then choose to progress into the Tuesday/Thursday sessions for more structured training if they wish to do so.
Thursday 7th August
Tempo Surge session for all groups.
Group coach to confirm duration of Tempo Surge prior to session.
New runners are always welcome along on a club night to try out the training sessions.
There’ll be no pressure to join, no expectation to run beyond your means and you won’t be left behind to run on your own.
