Group training is the main part of club activity, alongside independent training amongst members, races and social events.
Sessions take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from our club house in Leyton Jubilee Park. In addition, social runs take place on Sunday mornings.
Tuesday night training sessions are for all runners aged 18 years and over, focusing on interval running at relative fast, recovery and sprint paces. Members meet at the clubhouse and take a warm up run to a specific area planned for the length of intervals, followed by a return group run to cool down. You must register to attend via the SPOND App from 24 hours before the session, and before you start your journey. For full details follow this link:
Thursday night training sessions are for all runners aged 18 years and over, focusing on tempo running around 90% of your maximum pace. It should feel challenging enough so that you can’t comfortably chat, but can manage a short sentence and can maintain the pace for the full session. We host three different distances and group runners by pace into one of the three available routes. You must register to attend via the SPOND App from 24 hours before the session, and before you start your journey. For full details follow this link:
Sunday morning social runs are arranged on an ad-hoc basis via the SPOND app. Our run leaders host a variety of sessions: easy recovery runs, longer marathon-training runs, hill sessions etc. on a variety of routes and to suit all abilities. Members can review the available options each week to find a suitable distance / pace combination.
Our Sunday runs are scheduled to finish at the club house at about 11am, where we can all enjoy post-run coffee & cake together. Don’t worry if you can’t find a session to suit you every week – you can still run by yourself and join us afterwards.
