Our club meets for a social run every Tuesday, and for a training run every Thursday. We also participate in cross-country and road races most weekends, and ad-hoc groups often get together during the week for various other runs together, such as long runs.
All of our activities are attended by members of all abilities.
Winter runs are on the road within Burton, starting from the Shobnall Leisure Complex reception.
Summer runs are off-road from various locations in the Burton area, usually starting and finishing at a pub.
High vis vests must be worn for all winter evening runs, and head torches where street lighting is poor. If any member requires a HDRC high vis vest, please can they contact Karen Jackson.

This is a 0.6 mile (1km) mainly off-road hill from Elms Road to the water tower on Tower Road followed by a 0.3mile (500m) slight downhill to the far end of Tower Road. Then back to the water tower and down the hill to complete one 1.8 mile (3km) rep. and take a short rest. We'll do 2 reps and if we get a bit strung out the faster guys can do a bonus third rep.
