What’s on this week?

Hello everyone!

I hope you’ve all had a great sunny weekend. This week I have the usual details about Tuesday and Thursday for you, along with some good news about membership and another Captain’s corner (see below).

So firstly, Graham H has asked me to say a big thank you to everyone who has renewed their membership this year, and a huge welcome and thank you to all our new members who have joined us and swelled our ranks to 170 members.

This week is the 5th of our hill sessions, so as usual, check the spreadsheet and sign in or out as needed:


There will be a run from the club too for those who are not doing intervals.


On Thursday it’s route 10 (or wherever you want to go with your group leader! Route 10 is here:


Here are the suggested pacing groups:

Group 1: 8 to 8:30 min miles

Group 2: 8:30 – 9 min miles
