Diary

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.

In general:
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.

    Meet at Meadowside Leisure Centre at 7:15pm (parking £1). From there we will do a warm up jog to Elms Road.
    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.
