Thursday Routes – 22 June

As I am not sure how hot / humid it is going to be tomorrow, I have planned two routes (not in the ‘big book’!!) which include Burbage Woods and which stay pretty close to home so anyone who is struggling in the heat can get back easily.
Most of you are familiar with the woods so I hope can make sense of the route (!) but have a good look at the routes (it makes more sense if you use the ‘satellite option’ on ‘Mapometer’) before you come to the club and we will also make sure that everyone is running with someone / a group who knows where they are going!!

Short route : 7.1 miles approx

Long route: 9.3 miles approx

Please keep hydrated if the temperatures are still high.

Hinckley Leisure Centre 6.15pm for 6.30pm departure.

See you there 


Non members are welcome to join us and come along to try out the club.

Tuesday Training – 20th June

HANSOM CAB LONG REPS (approx 400m per loop)
COACHES: Michelle and Jenny
Working in 3’s of equal ability as A, B and C
A and B start, A drops off and B picks up C, B drops off and C picks up A, C drops off and A picks up B and so on for 30mins. This is a 2 lap on one lap off session (with the exception of A on the first loop). The purpose of the session is even pacing practice (the partner you pick up on lap 2 will help with this as they will have fresher legs following their rest)
The weather is looking good so it would be rude not to pop in the pub for a drink so if you are feeling sociable, put some £ in your pocket for a refreshing cold post-run refuel 🙂
Meet at the Leisure Centre 6:15pm for 6:30 depart or at Hansom Cab 6:40.
