New Training Sessions

With the dark winter months fast approaching, various people are looking for additional training sessions that are a little different from the evening runs around the roads of Leighton & Linslade. There is no change to Wednesday nights, but these should give a couple more options that may also fit into your diary and get you away from the street lamp blues of running up and down Bideford Green!

Saturday Hill Training – Tom May is going to lead a session in Stockgrove Park most weeks (It won't happen on race days) that will leave from the main car park at 8.30am. It will consist of a warm-up, a series of efforts up and down various hills in the park and a cool down. This is ideal strength training for all running, but in particular the cross-country season. Just turn up if you are interested. read more

Alternative Training

In this weather that has not been ideal for standard training methods, people have looked to various alternatives. There has been talk of the gym, swimming, ten-pin bowling and even special work done on the right bicep in various public houses. However, Nick has gone to a whole new level! With his military history he probably has a rifle strapped about his person somewhere so that he can head off to Vancouver for the Olympic Biathlon!
