From March 2019 we now offer running sessions on Tuesday evenings for all levels of ability.
Each Tuesday night there will be three groups available, catering for different speeds.
Jon Parkinson is an Athletics Coach, ex GB Triathlete and Ironman, and has organised sessions that meet at 6.30pm each Tuesday at Torbay Leisure Centre. In order to keep things simple, these sessions are only suitable for people capable of running a sub 6.30 mile or a sub 42 minute 10K
We are proud to have as part of our team, six England Athletics qualified run leaders who will be taking out two groups each Tuesday evening.
Group 1 – offering approximately 8.30 pace per mile for a distance between 6 to 8 miles.
Group 2 – offering approximately 9.30 pace per mile for a distance between 5 – 7 miles
Both groups will meet in the Torbay Leisure Centre reception for a 6.45pm start.
The run leaders will be posting their sessions in advance each week so you know what to expect, where the route will be and who will be leading. This will be posted on the club’s Facebook page so you can ask any questions and comment.
All members are welcome to join in and any new runners are also encouraged to come along and try a few sessions for free. There are no set rules but more a case of good, safe practice the coaches will be following so please respect their leadership. This includes…
– wearing suitable clothing, including high viz during the darker nights
– please have in your possession at all times an emergency contact. This can be in the form of your membership card, an ICE bracelet, Parkrun band, phone or just details written on a piece of paper in your pocket. Any emergency medical details would also be very helpful should they be needed.
