Running Training – Track

What: Track, Run
Where: Chaucer School, Wordsworth Avenue, Sheffield, S5 8NH
When: 7:00pm – 8:00pm Wednesdays (Check if Sheffield Wednesday FC are playing at Hillsborough and leave set off early if they are!)
Coaches: Bob Pringle & Karen Weir
Cost: £5 booked via ClubSpark

Track sessions can improve your overall speed regardless of the distance you compete over. The theory is that repeated repetitions at above race pace sets will help your body adapt to the faster pace, bringing your run times down.  It really does work!  The sessions are aimed to improve 5Km run times, but will benefit all traithlon distances.

Each session will contain a warm up, dynamic stretching, the main set, a warm down and stretching.

You will need:

  • Running shoes – your ordinary running shoes will suffice (very short spikes (its a tartan track!) are permitted if you have them)
  • Wear your ordinary running gear, according to conditions, with a jacket/top and tights/bottoms for warm up and warm down (It can be very windy up here, so bring extra layers, especially in winter!)
  • A drink


Running Training – Social

What: Road and/or trail run
Where: Starting from Millhouses Park Cafe
When: From 7:00pm Thursdays most weeks (check Facebook group or contact us)
Organiser: Ben Anderson
Cost: Free

This is not a coached session and is at your own risk. If numbers allow there will be a faster and a slower group but generally this is a more sociable run rather than hard training. Routes often take in Ecclesall Woods so please wear shoes with good grip if possible, bring a headtorch/torch, and high-vis vests are preferable.
