DH RUNNERS GROUP GUIDANCE
As the club continues to grow we wanted to remind members of guidance for the group runs that we currently have on offer.
All groups meet at the Rome Street car-park (CA2 5LQ) next to the council tip at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start. Non-members welcome at £1 per session.
This session covers a distance between 4 and 6 miles and is designed to build runners up from 5K towards 10k distance. The group also runs speed/intervals sessions on a monthly basis.
TUESDAY (INTERMEDIATE AND ABOVE)
This group generally has 2 runs each session a 10k and an 8 mile route and can include hill and speed work. It is recommended that you are able to run the full distance in 75 minutes (12 minutes per mile) to ensure run leader support can be arranged.
THURSDAY BEGINNERS GROUP
This session covers a distance of 5k and is designed to welcome complete beginners who are welcome to run or walk as much as they like. This session has a maximum pace of ten minute miles and we ask that this is respected. This is to ensure that the group feel comfortable with the pace and is able to be fully supported throughout by run leaders. We always welcome other runners to assist the run leaders but they must do this with the agreement of the run leader in advance of the day. We are currently running taster sessions every second month on Tuesdays to aid the transition from this group to the Tuesday group. Also runners returning from injury may be best placed in the Thursday session in the short term to aid recovery
YOU CAN RUN SESSIONS
This is a six week course for complete beginners which runs three times a year. The You Can Run sessions run parallel to the Thursday group to support anyone who feels they need some extra support when learning to run. Once the six weeks are over attendees will then move into the Thursday group.
