At present we have a choice of five official sessions per week including road running, hill reps, track & circuit training. The Sunday morning sessions are regularly depleted by official races and tend to be organised either by word-of-mouth or on the members-only forum.

Free parking & toilets.

Usually takes 90 minutes. 

£2.50 per session - please bring exact change if possible.

Thursdays @ 6:45pm

Heath Rugby Club, West Vale.

This is the main club night. Usually all 4 groups available to cater for all abilities, especially steady runners. The best night to attend if you want to try us out, then join us in the bar afterwards for some well earned liquid refreshment.  Average 5 - 8 miles - click here for map.

If you fancy something different to tarmac, some fun and exciting off road runs are available too so please bring appropriate footwear, and maybe a clean dry pair of shoes for afterwards! Usually 6 miles.
These will be advertised on the forum and Facebook page so keep an eye out.

And when the nights draw in...don't forget your headtorch!

Note; usually on the second Thursday of the month we train away from our usual base at another venue, normally a pub. Checkout the Away Runs page for details.
