Choosing the right run session

Monday and Wednesday night runs:

These evening runs are suitable for complete novices through to more experienced runners, so everyone is welcome to come along. If you have never run with a group before and are new to running then this is the ideal place for you to start.

Some weeks are steady run sessions or work on technique, whereas others work on strength or pace. The only pre-requisite is that anyone coming along should be able to run 3-4 miles without stopping.

On a Monday we meet at 18.00 (ready to leave at 18.15) in the reception area of the Royal Commonwealth Pool  and on a Wednesday we meet at 19.15 (ready to leave at 19.30) in the reception area of the SMC Sports Centre.

Please make sure you are dressed for the weather. High visibility clothing is required for the winter evenings.

 

Track sessions:

Every Friday evening at 18:00 the club holds a track session at Saughton Sports Complex. This type of run training is excellent for increasing basic speed and educating the body in pace awareness. All runners can benefit from track sessions, no matter what their ability.

Please arrive by 17.45pm to warm up and be ready to start on time.

Track sessions cost £5.15 please pay at reception before making your way track side.

 

Off road runs:

During the autumn and winter months many of our members organise off road runs at various locations. Typically, these are led rather than coached and are usually organised via the clubs Facebook page.

These cater for all abilities but expect people to have some running experience for 1 -2 hours. Off road running shoes are recommended and clothing suitable for all conditions.
