There will be a choice of distance up the same hill: 0.11 miles (180m) with approx. 60ft of climb, ave. gradient 10%; 0.26miles with approx. 120ft of climb, ave. gradient 8.5%. We will start from the MEADOWSIDE Leisure Centre at 7:00pm (bring coins for parking). We’ll warm up running to Violet Way via Clay St. which is about 1.5 miles.

    Meet at Shobnall Reception for a 7:00pm departure. We will do a 1.4 mile warm up run to Forest Edge Way. If you can’t make it to Shobnall for 7:00 go directly to Forest Edge Way; we’ll probably get there at 7:15 but it won’t matter if you’re a little late.
    Forest Edge Way is a loop of 0.35 miles having an elevation gain of 22 feet for the first half of the lap, so the intervals will have a slight uphill and downhill. The course is in a residential area, crosses no roads, has good street lighting and has little traffic.
    It’ll be the 2 sets of 5 x 2 minute efforts with 1 minute recovery between each; 5 minute break between sets.
