The club runs 3 or 4 training sessions per week throughout the year all designed to complement any training programme, to help you achieve a goal, to improve your PBs or just to make you stronger, fitter and healthier.
Monday nights are the club’s weekly speed work session, taken by a UKA qualified coach. The sessions are designed to be suitable for anyone capable of running with the club on a Wednesday night. These sessions include a mixture of faster paced running and mobility work, and are an excellent way to improve your running across the full range of race distances.
All sessions meet at 6:30pm, with the meeting point for the winter sessions currently being Beverley Leisure Centre on Flemingate. During the Summer months meet on the Westwood at the top of Westwood Road. The session starts and finishes from here.
Wednesday Club group run
Wednesdays 6:30pm. A run where all the club set off together for any distance or speed to suit you. Distances vary from approximately 4 up to 10 miles. During the winter we try to arrange leaders for certain distances and speeds (generally 8 min miles, then every 30 seconds to 10 min miles). This is especially valuable for new-comers to the club. Meet at Beverley leisure centre HU17 0LT.
Club run – Away night. Once a month from April to September (inclusive) a run is planned at an alternative location, convening afterwards in a local hostelry for food. As soon as the locations and dates have been confirmed, they are added to the club calendar.
During the winter we often organise head torch runs, still setting off from the Leisure Centre, but taking advantage of the many footpaths and rural trails around Beverley. Trail shoes and a head torch essential!
Thursday evenings are taken by a UKA qualified coach, and are designed to improve running technique and strength. The sessions are designed to be achievable by all, no matter what the starting point is as all of the activities can be scaled to the appropriate level. The session runs in term time only at the Longcroft lower school gym between 7 and 8 pm. The session will start at 7pm, so aim to arrive at 6:50pm. Parking is easiest from Church Road.
