Running

Welcome to the running section!  

If you like to run, you might like a run in company and we have members who never race and never feel the need to race.  You don’t have to be fast!  We have faster runners in the club, but most of us are much more modestly talented.  We’re open to all runners, however local you are.

We have two regular training nights – Mondays and Wednesdays.  The first is more biased towards a ‘quality session’ with structured training (track sprints, intervals, etc.).  Meeting is at 6:30 pm – during winter at Castle Park, Frodsham and during the summer months at Helsby High School Playing Fields.

Our Wednesday run is the main training night with a bigger turnout.  In summer, most of us enjoy an off-road run around Helsby and Frodsham hills. In winter we’re a bit more restricted by the daylight and have a regular rota of three runs of around 8 miles.  Some opt for a shorter run.              

Race build up?  If you’ve got an ambition to start racing or perhaps complete one of the popular 5k series like Race for Life, we can help.

Got a burning ambition for the big 26.2 distance?  We have several marathon veterans who can give you a few pointers.
